Sidney Poitier continues to break race barriers with this formula
jail-break drama. Teamed with Tony Curtis, the escaped prisoners
encounter many situations, where their difference in color seems to
matter more than the fact that both are fugitives from the law.
Throughout the film, the viewer empathizes with the escapees, figuring
that they always got a bum deal in life. A scene towards the end, where
a single mother sees a chance to "hook up" with Curtis, shows how
Curtis, although often disagreeing, even physically fighting with
Poitier, still sees Poitier as an equal in their quest for freedom.
Rather than "sell out" his friend, he would rather die trying to save
him. The inevidable ending (remember that one of the rules in Old
Hollywood was that the bad guys can never win)is quite moving.
Definitely among the established Hollywood Classics. Although many of
the "old ways" have changed drastically since the late 50s, this film
offers insight into a piece of Americana many people living today can
still recall. An important piece of Film History, and highly
