In "The Great Escape", then what type of aircraft did James Garner & Donald Pleasence steal to make their flight away with?


I'll suggest that others here posing theirs ought to AWARD on it. You may have to await until I obtain enough for even THAT then!

3 questions about the film "Victory" (or "Escape to Victory"). Each question is eligible for GG. But, per the Geeklist header, only 1 prize per person, and only if you haven't won GG from another question on this list.

1. Which professional club did John Colby (played by Michael Caine) play for before the war?

2. Which nation does Luis Fernandez (played by Pele) come from?

3. Who coached Sylvester Stallone with his goalkeeping skills (behind the scenes)?

There's a well-known war movie that features an actor who, as a soldier years before, actually participated in the battle depicted. However, he does not play himself in the movie but plays another role, and a different actor plays him. So he's in the movie as an actor (playing someone else) and as a character (played by someone else). Finally, there's a scene in the movie where the two meet and talk!

Name the movie and the man.
