A savings-and-loan bank is robbed; later, a police wiretap identifies teller Leon Poole as inside man. In capturing him, detective Sam Wagner accidentally kills Poole's young wife, and at his trial Poole swears vengeance against Wagner. About three years later, Poole (until then a model prisoner) abruptly takes his chance to kill a guard and escape. It's clear during the ensuing manhunt that Poole is obsessed in pursuit of a single end; but not quite the end everyone supposes. Written by

Psychopath seeks revenge on cop who killed his wife.
Very tight movie until the end. At that point it becomes completely illogical to drive a dramatic finish. However, it is still very enjoyable. Very different from todays crime movies. It's clear that the code is at hand with the separate beds for Cotten and Flemming and very little up close violence.
