Escape to Victory (stylized as Victory) is a 1981 American-British-Italian sports war film. The head of a German POW camp, soccer enthusiast Karl von Steiner (Max von Sydow) organizes a match between Nazi players and their Allied captives. While the team, which also includes Luis Fernandez (Pelé) of Trinidad, trains for the match under a veteran British player (Michael Caine), Robert Hatch (Sylvester Stallone) plans a dangerous mass escape from the camp. The film received great attention upon its theatrical release, as it also starred professional footballers.
