"A very effective film - based on true events - portraying the cruel and unjust treatment in a Georgia chain gang.

Great example of a 1930's American social problem film, with an exceptional performance by Paul Muni. "

Based on Robert Elliott Burns' autobiography, 'I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang' came out while Burns was still in prison and its impact was such that changes were made to the American legal system, resulting in the re"
