The Great Escape
Elmer Bernstein


Listen to some great film music at now

Down 17 for this truly iconic piece of movie music

Elmer Bernstein strikes again with another iconic soundtrack that is as ubiquitous as his theme for The Magnificent Seven. Bernstein happily lived off the royalties from this, one of the most memorable and catchy of all film themes, and would probably have been bemused at its appearance at England football matches, where it has been a fixture since the mid-1990s.
