Description
(Winner of 2 Academy Awards/Best Screenplay, Black and White Cinematography; Also nominated for Best Picture, Director, Actor/Tony Curtis & Sidney Poitier, Supporting Actor/Theodore Bikel, Supporting Actress/Cara Williams) Escaping from an overturned prison van was easy, but now convicts "Joker" Jackson (Tony Curtis) and Noah Cullen (Sidney Poitier) must come to terms with each other. Chained together and pursued by a compassionate sheriff (Theodore Bikel) and his posse, the two men forge an unlikely friendship in their quest to reach freedom. Praised by the New York Times as "a remarkably apt and dramatic visualization of a social idea," this 1958 drama also stars Lon Chaney, Charles McGraw, and—in his final film appearance—Our Gang's Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer.

"The performances by Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier are virtually flawless. Poitier captures all of the moody violence of the convict.... It is a cunning, totally intelligent portrayal that rings powerfully true. As 'Joker' Jackson, the arrogant white man chained to a fellow convict whom he hates, Curtis delivers a true surprise performance."—Variety
