Plot summary
7 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bellows (actor Robert Doyle) is seen leaving a Nebraska farmhouse by Benjy (actor Randy Boone) and Charley (actor Bruce Dern). Inside they find their parents murdered. Bellows runs off and steals a car. He wrecks the car and runs off again, but is captured.

Richard Kimble (using the name Ben Rogers), working in the area as a mechanic for farm machinery, is stopped by the posse, but soon is recognized as innocent.

The sheriff wants to bring Bellows and 4 witnesses to the county seat for legal proceedings, so he secures a bus from Kimble's boss. Since the boss is busy that night, he taps Kimble to be the driver. Kimble reluctantly goes, and reluctantly gets sworn in as a deputy to help guard the prisoner while the real deputy does some of the driving.

The drunken witnesses hatch a plan to lynch Bellows, disturbing Kimble greatly, since Bellows is proclaiming his innocence.

Kimble's efforts to save Bellows work out badly, and Kimble falls under suspicion of being a confederate of Bellows. Kimble must fight hard to recapture the fugitive and restore his own (Ben Rogers') reputation.
