Ten great escapes

In honor of this week's The Way Back, a gulag-breakout movie, we gather our favorite getaways.

It's one of the most iconic chase moments in movie history: Speeding away from the Nazis on a motorcycle, Steve McQueen tears across a field until he gets to a fence. As the bad guys approach en masse, McQueen revs up his hog, hits the gas—and jumps right over the barbed-wire barrier. Awesome.—DF
