Celebrate 'The Great Escape' with this best selling t-shirt. One of the greatest movie motorcycle scenes ever is Captain Virgil Hilt's (Steve McQueen) chase sequence in 'The Great Escape'.
The jump into the barbed wire was done by a stunt man, however McQueen did have lots of screen time riding a 650cc Triumph TR6 Trophy. At one point, due to clever editing, he's in a German uniform chasing him-self on another bike!
MAX MUMBLES says: " Steve McQueen an actor who raced or a racer who acted?
