The Great Escape(1963)

I'm not denying that it's a good movie. I like it, but I don't think it's an absolute classic. The acting is great, and the plot is historically realistic, but my main problem is that the film is deplorably long. It's longer than any of Sean Connery's 007 movies. If there's one thing that defines the film, it's the film's classic soundtrack, and that film looks really good. And besides, the plot does flow quite nicely.
