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.
