Q Did Christopher Reeve ever star in a remake of the movie The Great Escape? I saw the previews, and I think he portrayed a German officer.
—Sherman Benson, Kenyon, Minn.

You're partly correct. Reeve starred as American-born British Maj. John Dodge in The Great Escape II: The Untold Story. The 1988 TV movie added a follow-up storyline to the original theatrical film of 1963, which recounted an escape by Allied soldiers from a German POW camp during World War II.
