The comments are all muddled. This is the PBS documentary, not the Steve McQueen film.
I hope it is accurate and helps set the record straight: Stalag Luft 3 was a camp for British Commonwealth prisoners. So there were no American prisoners there. Several of the "starring roles" played by the big-name American actors in the movie were, in real life, very brave and clever Canadians.
