Description: Set in the deep south, two escaped convicts (Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier) are separated by their color, but bound by their desire for freedom and a 29-inch steel chain. Two escaped convicts -- one black (Poitier), one white (Curtis), ... Full Descriptionand both shackled in the same pair of handcuffs -- battle the elements and each other as they travel Southern back roads eluding the ever-approaching posse. Though the device of binding two racial antagonists together for survival may be rather obvious, the performances make the result compelling. Watch for Lon Chaney, Jr. along the way. ... (more)

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: January (49 movies items)

"January 23 "How come they chained a white man to a black?" "The warden's got a sense of humor." What a great movie this was. Sidney Poiter and Tony Curtis performances are just as great as they were back then and the story was really engaging. While it does kind of lose a bit of steam near the end, it's still a great movie that I'm surprised that there's a lot of people that don't know about it."
