I saw this movie when it first came out and have seen it on the telly several times. This is the movie that cemented Steve McQueen's reputation as a major movie star. Surprisingly, this movie did not receive any Academy Awards. In fact, I don't think it received any nominations. No Best Actor for Steve McQueen, surely an oversight. No Best Supporting Actor. No Best Picture. No Best Director. No Best Cinematography. No Best Movie Score. No Best Adapted Screenplay. Must have been a tough year.
I believe Chicken Run is still available on Netflix also
