Killers on a Furlough from Hell! The rarest of jailbreak films, and one of the best! William Bendix, Arthur Kennedy, Luther Adler, Gene Evans, Marshall Thompson and William Talman (as a knife-chucking religious fanatic) crash out of the pen to unearth a stashed robbery payroll. Director Lewis Foster?s frantic film is full of wild flourishes and stunningly brutal action. Featuring leggy Beverly Michaels, wholesome Gloria Talbott, and ? Percy Helton! You?ll only find this buried treasure at NOIR CITY!

1953, Allied Artists (Warner Bros) 80 min.
Dir. Harold Schuster
NOIR CITY is proud to resurrect one of the rarest films of the original noir era, a tidy tale of unjust persecution that plays like a B-film Les Miserables. An innocent bank clerk (Barry Sullivan), made the fall guy in an embezzlement scheme, is pursued to the brink of insanity by a scarily righteous lawman (merciless Charles McGraw, in an signature performance). Presented in a brand new 35mm print funded by the Film Noir Foundation!
NOT ON DVD!
