I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang

Six sticks of dynamite that blasted his way to freedom... and awoke America's conscience!

Warner Bros.' hard-hitting chain-gang movie was a faithful adaptation of the similarly titled autobiography of Robert Elliot Burns. Paul Muni plays World War I veteran James Allen, whose plans of becoming a master architect evaporate in the cold light of economic realities. Times get really tough when he's falsely convicted of a crime and forced to work on a chain gang.
