1960's cinema is littered with iconic characters, from Sean Connery's
James Bond and Michael Caine's Charlie Crocker to Clint Eastwood's Man
With No Name, but was there anyone cooler than Captain Virgil Hilts?
Hell, he even crashed and was captured, yet still we'd want to be him
over any of those that completed The Great Escape. Chilling out in the
cooler with his baseball, safe in the knowledge that when he was back in
the States before the war racing flat track, picking up a buck here and
there to help pay his tuition, he was doing it with the effortless cool
that only Steve McQueen could muster.
