When Lt. Hess reports detecting the signal, he only states that he is located "a mile east of the bridge," without giving a direction bearing. This would be useless information, as without the bearing, there is no way of knowing from what direction the signal is coming. See more »
Kimble works as gardener for a wealthy family, Mike and Laura Pryor. When son Glen is injured while Mike is at work, Kimble and Laura take him to the doctor.
Harold Cheyney, played by actor Leslie Neilsen, sees the three of them together, and the affectionate relationship between the child and Kimble. He presumes Kimble is Mike Pryor, and kidnaps him for ransom. He brings Kimble back to a hideout where his wife Irene Cheyney, played by actress Carol Rossen, is waiting. She is a willing and eager participant in the plan.
Cheyney is acting out of a need for money, and for revenge, since he was crippled by one of Pryor's trucks, and Pryor's attorneys cheated him out of compensation. When he learns he has the wrong man, he reduces the ransom price, but continues with the plan. Meanwhile, a photo by Laura helps police figure out who the kidnap victim really is, causing Kimble to face danger from two fronts.
