Cartoon: What If Movie Characters Had Poor Eyesight? (The Great Escape)




Here’s how it might play out.

The Great Escape, a World War II thriller, is often thought of as one of the all-time great war films. But what if poor eyesight had rendered Capt. Virgil Hilts, played by Steve McQueen, less capable of finding his way on a motorcycle?

As you might recall, the folks at Visian ICL recently highlighted the fact that that big-screen heroes and villains tend to have good vision.

They pondered these questions: “Just what would it be like if movie characters had poor eyesight, and how would this affect the famous scenes we’ve come to know and love?” The company, which offers an implantable lens for vision correction, worked with illustrator Wren McDonald to show how such scenarios might play out.

The last installment depicted a scene from Taxi Driver. And now, here’s a poor-eyesight version of a scene from The Great Escape:movie glasses The great escape 700
