The Great Escaper

Marketing image for The Great Escaper featuring Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson

The Great Escaper score album is now out on Milan Records.  It was a really special film to work on. Hope you like the score which was so brilliantly recorded by all the talented musicians at East Connection Music in Budapest with Paul Towndrow (sax),  mixed (and whistling!) by Jake Jackson and additional album mixes by Andy Bradfield.  

The movie is inspired by true events and tells the story of octogenarian Bernard Jordan’s escape from his care home to attend the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings in France. William Ivory (Made in Dagenham, Burton and Taylor) wrote the screenplay. Robert Bernstein & Douglas Rae (Becoming Jane, Nowhere Boy) are producing the Ecosse Films production for Pathe, BBC Film and Ingenious Media. George Fenton was originally attached to score the project. The Great Escaper was released in UK theaters on October 6, 2023.
