Morgan is framed as the driver and sent to jail. Seeking revenge, he escapes and heads for London. Along the way he's helped by a woman (Mrs. Fenshaw), who wants him to murder her husband. In London, Morgan is sheltered by Sally, who falls in love with him. He confronts Narcy and the gang in an abandoned warehouse.

Watch They Made Me a Fugitive - Alternative Versions.
Alberto Cavalcanti's THEY MADE ME A FUGITIVE is, to my tastes, the great
British Gangster movie and a contender for great Film-Noir as well. At the
time of release it was probably overshadowed by BRIGHTON ROCK and THE THIRD
MAN, both similar in look and attitude, but what sets FUGITIVE apart is its
uncompromisingly bleak realism and pessimistic amorality.
Trevor Howard plays the part of a former R.A.F. pilot who is struggling to
survive in the austere post-war era of rationing and comparative boredom of
peacetime life.He offers his services to a Black Market racketeer, Narcy, a
foppish but lethal character who deals in contraband under cover of his
legitimate funeral business.
Narcy and his gang are characters who just didn't appear in British films
until GET CARTER came along.They are portrayed as the typical film 'cockney
sparrows' of the time but with a difference-they carry
flick-knives,knuckle-dusters and even guns.They listen in to the police on
a huge radio set. At one point they are seen to knock out a British
bobby.-you'd have to be born and raised in Britain in the forties or
fifties to realise how what a shock that would have caused at the time of
the film's release.
Trevor Howard's character,though,is thoroughly bad in a different way.He is
a hero gone wrong,a good chap who lets the side down.When he's in a fight to
the death with Michael Brennan he resorts to dirty fighting (very un-British
at the time) and even head-butts Brennan.As Howard is creeping into the
funeral parlour for the final confrontation with Narcy and his thugs we see
a sign with the words ITS LATER THAN YOU THINK,which I believe resurfaced in
Herlihy's MIDNIGHT COWBOY.
In conclusion I would like to propose that THEY MADE ME A FUGITIVE should
be considered,along with Brighton Rock,Get Carter etc as a prime example of
social realism in film.
