Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Closing Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble walking down a crowded street] Another town with its thousand faces. Examine them well. For somewhere among them, tonight, tomorrow, next week, will be one face that will tighten in recognition. And for a Fugitive, the running will begin again.

Plot summary
26 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

Kimble hops a train, and in the car finds Carol Hollister, played by actress Diana Hyland. She is there with her baby. Another man, Preacher, played by actor Royal Dano, is fleeing the railroad guards and is helped aboard by Kimble.

Carol is weak and broke and needs to find her husband Jimmy. Kimble offers to help. He slowly learns that Carol is delusional. She survived a crash a year earlier that killed her husband and baby, and has kidnapped a baby. The police, led by Detective Malleson (actor Lin McCarthy), are looking hard for Carol and her unknown traveling companion, Kimble, after a tip from Preacher. Carol begins to think that Kimble is Jimmy.

In her confused state, Carol puts the baby in jeopardy. Kimble must find and save the baby, even at the risk of his own freedom. The ending, where he gets away, is very well done.
