Great Escape

It would appear that Mr Steve McQueen was only the second choice of director John Sturges. With the original screenplay being written for a overall more furry animal, namely Neville the Meerkat. As this early promotional material shows

Bet Nevillie was gutted when they pulled him out purely because he:
a) couldn't ride a motorcycle
b) couldn't talk
c) wasn't able to catch a ball for a love nor money

Not only was he discarded by this film, he was utterly blanked at castings for "Chicken Run" the re-make of the "Great Escape" due to him being – too real!

Bless him
