Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration] The difference between good and bad, between love and hate, is often elusive. The difference between life and death for Richard Kimble is always simply his freedom to remain a fugitive.

Plot summary
16 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble, under the name Stuart Manning, is working at Indian Lake Resort when the boss finds the safe open and a bag of money missing. When police come to investigate they take fingerprints of the employees, requiring Kimble to hit the road.

Kimble intercepts the shuttle bus and tries to flee, but the road is blocked by a landslide. The majority of passengers encourage the driver to find a side road to get through.

The other passengers are an odd assortment who have complex relationships among themselves and with Kimble. One of them is a middle aged man, Tod Langner (actor Lee Bowman), who wants to feel like and live like a young man, to the dismay of his wife Enid (actress Phyllis Thaxter). The other passengers, an attractive woman who had argued with Kimble the night before, and a young man who is a criminal, have mixed feelings about Kimble, and play important roles in the drama.

After the bus breaks down on a deserted back road, the radio announces that Stuart Manning is really Richard Kimble, escaped murderer. Langner, anxious to display his manliness to the young lady, takes charge, by seizing the young criminal's gun, and using it to capture Kimble and hold him for the police.
