The Great Knitted Escape

Check out this recreation of the motorcycle chase scene from the 1963 movie, The Great Escape, in which a woolly-headed Steve McQueen tries to escape to the Swiss border on a crocheted Triumph TR6. This tribute was produced by in association with Baker-bunch to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the release of The Great Escape, which in turn was based on Paul Brickhill's book about the March 24th, 1944 escape of 77 British airmen from the high security Stalag Luft III POW camp.
