Richard Kimble (actor David Janssen), on escape after being wrongly convicted for the murder of his wife, arrives in Clark City, a lively town where gambling, alcohol, and adult entertainment are served up to tourists. Two policemen approach Kimble but instead of arresting him, they beat him and order him to get out of town. Kimble does not want to leave town because he believes he saw Fred Johnson (the one-armed man Kimble saw running from the scene of the crime). Kimble seeks out the head of the gambling syndicate, Ollie Enright, to ask for help.

Kimble was right. Fred Johnson (actor Bill Raisch) is in town, using the name Cramer, and works for the gambling syndicate as a bag man, giving payoffs directly to the Chief of Police. He is now prosperous and well dressed. He paid the officers to run Kimble out of town.

Enright is unaware of Johnson's plotting. He does not like people giving orders to police on their own, and wants things in the town to go smoothly so the income can keep coming in. Enright puts out the word to the police to stop the harassment, causing the police to refuse to cooperate with Johnson. He also puts Kimble on the payroll as a bartender, to keep an eye on him, and to catch the people responsible for Kimble's beating.

Kimble and Johnson maneuver against each other. In a dramatic scene, Kimble captures Johnson and drags him to the police station, insisting they call Lieutenant Gerard. However, circumstances work against Kimble.

Actor Eduardo Cianelli masterfully plays the part of elderly gangster Victor Luchek.
