Man uses ingenuous way to escape Prison
14 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. So naturally I only got to see it once over twenty yrs. ago. I would give anything to see it again. Actually I would love to have it on DVD. It keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat from the time the escape starts until it ends. Much better than Midnight Express. If anyone ever knows how to get a copy please let me know. Kay Lenz is great as the wife. She teaches her husband how to look, act, and walk like a woman. How different is that? I have never seen an escape movie that comes close to being as riveting. I sometimes wonder how Hollywood decides which movies get played over and over and over again when they are not near as good as this one.
