Arnie Judlow, an inmate at San Quentin prison serving a life sentence for murder, devises a daring plan with his wife and his brother Bill to help him escape, part of which involves Bill and Arnie's wife posing as a married couple and moving to a house near the prison. Although the plan appears to go smoothly at first, it soon runs into a few snags--the couple move next door to a suspicious prison guard who knows Arnie and, more importantly, Bill and his brother's wife begin to find themselves attracted to each other.

This was the very first motion picture I can remember seeing on television. It must have been in 59 or 60 on the old NBC Saturday Night at The Movies and I was either three or four. It has stuck with me all these years and I have never seen it since. I do remember the Jack Palance character attempting to switch places with his twin brother in California's San Quentin penitentiary and a washing machine agitator being used as some type of grappling hook device. I'd love to see it again after all these years.
