From filmmaker and film historian Chris Espenan comes The Coolest Guy Movie Ever - a fascinating forensic documentary about the making of the classic World War II adventure film The Great Escape - to DVD and digital HD from Virgil Films on August 21, 2018, after a special screening earlier this year at Marché du film in Cannes.

Few World War II adventure films are as, well, great, as John Sturges' 1963 film The Great Escape. Based on true events the film had an unrivaled ensemble cast including Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, David McCallum and Donald Pleasence.

In August Virgil Films will release The Coolest Guy Movie Ever, a documentary about the making of The Great Escape. Seeing as David McCallum, William Russell and John Leyton are the last surviving stars of the film Espenan had to assemble a team of cameramen, historians, film buffs, and local experts to find the exact locations where the film was made. It promises to be a fascinating trip back into film history for fans of The Great Escape.

Uncovering treasures such as footage from a German television news shoot - which included a rare interview on the set with Steve McQueen - to getting first person interviews from the locals who were there during filming, The Coolest Guy Movie Ever is a true labor of love, fashioned by filmmakers who exult The Great Escape as one of the most memorable World War II movies ever made, featuring one of the greatest casts ever assembled, and for many, indeed, The Coolest Guy Movie Ever.
