Quotes

Narrator: [Act One Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble, suitcase in hand, walking down a country road. He pauses to observe a sign that reads "Corona 13 miles"] This is a man who must keep moving, pursuing, pursued. He is not a man of solitude but often the friendless, open road is his only alternative to death by execution. Richard Kimble travels a lot by thumb, makes many a lonely hike between rides.

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

Kimble, hitchhiking, accepts a ride from Hanes McClure (actor Warren Oates). When the sheriff of the small town, Charles Edward Shafter (actor Phillip Abbot), learns Hanes is coming to town, he tries to stop him, but Hanes rushes by him.

Hanes has a reputation of being a dangerous criminal who has committed robberies and killings. Driving recklessly, he almost hits a young man, Tad Thompson (actor Dee Pollock), and Kimble grabs the wheel to save him. However, Hanes and Kimble both end up in jail. While Charles Edward knows Kimble is innocent in the traffic matter, and is grateful to Kimble for saving his life when Hanes pulled a gun, he recognized him as Dr. Kimble, and had to take him into custody.

Tad's mother Marybeth Thompson (actress Madeleine Sherwood) is the nosy telephone operator. She treats Tad like a child, and is an annoying presence throughout the episode. Tad's father ruined his life by associating in crime with Hanes McClure, and she is afraid Hanes will have the same effect on Tad. Tad wants to get out from under his mother's suffocating influence, and admires the aggressive, self-confident Hanes McClure.

As a carnival atmosphere settles on the town with two major criminals in the local jail, Kimble must join with Hanes, whom he dislikes and mistrusts, in order to make a jailbreak. Yet, he must also discourage Tad, who is all too eager to help the prisoners and enter into an exciting life of crime.
