The Great Escape, 1943 - The story of this escape was so famous that it was eventually made into a film of the same name. A South African named Roger Bushell who got in Dulag Luft, a prisoner transit camp for Air Force prisoners near Frankfurt, attempted to escape in 1941 and 1942.
Frank Morris and the Anglin brothers escape from Alcatraz, 1962 - Alcatraz island in San Francisco Bay was a federal prison from 1933 to 1963, and housed prisoners who had proved disruptive in other jails.

The Midnight Express, 1975 – The Midnight Express has been one of the most famous prison escapes of modern times. Billy Hayes, a 23-year-old student from New York, was sentenced to four years in a Turkish prison in 1970 for attempting to smuggle hashish out of the country.
Pascal Payet escape, 2007 - This Frenchman has a knack for Hollywood-style escapes.

The Maze Breakout, 1983 - Unlike other prison escapes, where the prisoners tried to escape as quietly as possible. The Maze breakout was filled with action and drama.
