Steve McQueen Chases Himself in "THE GREAT ESCAPE" (1963) (video)

One of the highlights of THE GREAT ESCAPE is when Virgil Hilts (Steve McQueen) steals a motorcycle and makes a desperate dash for freedom.

McQueen enjoyed the sequence so much that for part of it, he donned a German soldier's uniform...and chased himself. 

Steve did most of his own motorcycle riding. was his friend, stuntman Bud Ekins, who made that famous leap.
