Hi everyone

Hoping someone can help me track down a movie.

Its about a guy that is in a prison, who manages to escape dressed as a woman.

Not sure what year but its not a recent one.

It was set in maybe Turkey, or maybe Germany or Poland.

Its not Escape starring Timothy Buttons.

TIA if anyone can help.

I would say 'Midnight Express', except the escape is pulled off by dressing as a guard. Good flick, though. Sorry I couldn't be more relevant.

Thanks for the reply.

Its not Midnight Express but that was a great movie I agree.

Someone smuggles in womans clothing and make up and stuff and he learnt to carry himself like a woman.

Don't be sorry. lol. Thanks for trying.

All I can find online is someone else asking about it. And they didn't get an answer.

It could have been a prisoner of war camp, not sure.

All I can think of is A Man Escaped.

A great movie, almost no dialog and the soundtrack is Mozart's Great Mass in C minor!

Papillon was great too, that was what got me looking for others and found "A Man Escaped".

T&C was an excellent movie. So was the movie with Don Johnson and Mickey Rourke, Harley Davidson and Marlboro Man. Not the movie the OP asked about.

Bird Cage had Gene Hackman escape reporters mob by dressing as a woman.

Was it Wind in the Willows?

Toad gets busted for driving his car like a lunatic. He gets jailed and eventually gets busted out of there dressed as a washer-woman.

He doesn't even learn his lesson. Just carries on until Toad Hall gets overrun by the weasels.

When I am searching for something particular I feed Google some relevant words and see what will surface. I did the same with your request and THIS was one of the movies that might be it. Check it out and if not try feeding a search engine.



Good luck

I know the feeling. There's a film I tried to find for nearly 20 years.

Something crash lands in the Aussie outback and there's an alien living in a trailer or a diner. The alien guy dresses like a private eye from the 40s or 50s.

I gave up a few years ago and your thread has resurrected the frustration. Thanks for that

I found THIS site and it has a list of a lot of prison films from the US UK and abroad. Maybe you can find yours among them.
