The Great Escape II: The Untold Story
The Great Escape II: The Untold Story (1988) was a highly-fictionalized, made-for-TV sequel to the 1963 movie The Great Escape. It starred Christopher Reeve as John Dodge and Donald Pleasence (who had appeared as an escapee in the original), this time as an SS villain.
The Great Escape II essentially picks up where The Great Escape leaves off, covering the last chapter of Paul Brickhill's book, The Great Escape, on which both movies are based. However, The Great Escape II is almost complete fiction (using only the names of the real people involved). This is in contrast to The Great Escape, where names were changed and composite characters were used but the story is essentially accurate.
