One of the great ones!
Two escaped convicts chained together, white and black, must learn to get along in order to elude capture.

"Engrossing story... Fine performances...  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide

Editor's Note
Two escaped convicts -- one black (Poitier), one white (Curtis), and both shackled in the same pair of handcuffs -- battle the elements and each other as they travel Southern back roads eluding the ever-approaching posse. Though the device of binding two racial antagonists together for survival may be rather obvious, the performances make the result compelling. Watch for Lon Chaney, Jr. along the way.
