"the great escape" is one of my favorite movies of all time. i havnt seen it such a long time. i love how they put such a non political humor into it. most humorous war movies were almost to the point of propoganda. this was refreshingly different.
Von Luger: Are all American officers so ill-mannered?
Hilts: Yeah, about 99 percent.
Von Luger: Then perhaps while you are with us you will have a chance to learn some. Ten days isolation, Hilts.
Hilts: CAPTIAN Hilts.
Von Luger: Twenty days.
Hilts: Right. Oh, uh, you'll still be here when I get out?
Von Luger: Cooler.
