****SPOILERS**** Chief Robert T. Ironside, Raymond Burr, get's his new custom built station wagon carjacked with him in it as three dangerous convicts make their escape from prison lead by the convicted multiple murderer Mr. Sims played by Johnny "7" Seven. It was the usual on the ball Chief Ironside who was tricked into showing up at Warden Leydon's, Arthur Space, office in order to have him the warden and his wife Mrs. Leydon, Virginia Gregg, among others kidnapped by Sims and his two fellow convicts Toby, Dana Elcar, and Terry Wilson, Jackie Coogan Jr.

With Sims holding Ironside hostage as he together with Wilson & Toby make their escape in Ironside's station wagon their being tracked by Det. Sgt. Ed Brown, Don Galloway, in the air on a helicopter with Ironisde secretly having a tracking device in his pack of smokes on the ground. With Toby having shot and seriously wounded Warden Leydon the three escapees now face far bigger charges then breaking out of prison which makes them even more dangerous then they already were.

***SPOILERS*** It's at the docks where the three together with Sims' girlfriend Joy,Claire Brennen,were to make their escape on a speed boat with the 500G's they have stashed from a previous armored car robbery that their luck finally ran out. Not just in their escape route being blocked by the SFPD and US Coast Guard but with the wheelchair bound Ironsiode disarming Sims with a couple of karate chops. Which kept Sims from murdering all the hostages, Ironside included, as he promised if there was any police interference.
