A man framed for the manslaughter of a policeman escapes prison and plans his revenge on those who set him up
Based on the 1941 Jackson Budd novel A Convict Has Escaped, this highly regarded film noir was a notable box office attraction during the year of its release, and it’s still a good film today. It features a single night shot of a steam-hauled express passing over some viaduct arches.
