An artist is falsely accused of murder and is forced to flee both the law and organized crime when the real killers think he has their loot.

Vouchers are not valid for this screening.

Artist Jim Vanning (Aldo Ray) has his life go off the rails when fate pitches a pair of on-the-lam crooks into his winter hunting trip. From then on, he lives life on the run enduring dozens of double-crosses, psychotic killers on his tail, lots of flashbacks, and-on the bright side-beguiling Anne Bancroft. This often-overlooked gem features terrific direction from Jacques Tourneur and great work by cinematographer Burnett Guffey.
