It remains “a raw, powerful film that is as exciting as it is moving, real and literate”(Variety). Joker Jackson (Tony Curtis) and Noah Cullen (Sidney Poitier) are two convicts on the run. Escaping from a Southern work gang, the two men are bound together by an unbreakable iron chain and separated by an unbridled hatred towards each other. Relentlessly pursued by a posse and bloodhounds, they put aside their differences to survive. But when a lonely woman (Cara Williams) breaks their chain and deliberately sends Cullen to certain death, Jackson must decide what’s more important: saving Cullen…or saving himself. *1958: Best Picture, Actor (Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier), Supporting Actor (Theodore Bikel), Supporting Actress (Cara Williams), Director,Story and Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen (won), Cinematography (won), Film Editing Product details Actors: Tony Curtis, Sidney Poitier, Theodore Bikel, Charles McGraw, Lon Chaney Jr. Directors: Stanley Kramer Writers: Harold Jacob Smith, Nedrick Young Producers: Stanley Kramer Format: Black & White, Closed-captioned, Dolby, Dubbed, Letterboxed, Subtitled, Widescreen, NTSC Language: English (Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono), French (Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono), Unknown (Mono), Spanish (Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono) Subtitles: Spanish, French Dubbed: Spanish Region: Region 1 (U.S. and Canada only) Aspect Ratio: 1.66:1 Number of discs: 1 Rated: NR Not Rated Studio: MGM (Video & DVD) DVD Release Date: December 11, 2001 Run Time: 97 minutes
