(1958) Interracial chase thriller in which a black convict (Sidney Poitier) and a Southern redneck (Tony Curtis) flee a chain gang shackled together and needing each other if they are to make good their escape. Director Stanley Kramer’s message movie about the chains of prejudice may be a little too pat and melodramatic in developing the stark situation but the incidents along the way more than sustain interest until the finale. Some nasty stylized violence and racial epithets. The Catholic News Service classification of the theatrical version was A-III -- adults. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association. AMC (cable)
