Description by Warner Home Video:

Classic fact-based drama about an innocent man brutally victimized by the Depression-era criminal justice system.

Plot Synopsis:

Paul Muni stars as James Allen, a pathetic victim of legal injustice in this classic drama from famed director-producer Mervy LeRoy. The unwitting fall guy for a crime he only witnesses, Allen is forced to toil on a chain gang and then to live a life on the lam after he escapes. Based on Robert E. Burns's autobiographical story, this is still an incredibly powerful movie, with a provocative story and memorable performances.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: November 10, 1932.
  • I AM A FUGITIVE FROM A CHAIN GANG was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1991.
  • Upon its release, the film embarrassed government officials in Georgia so much that they banned it throughout the state. They also forbid creators Mervyn LeRoy and Jack Warner from ever entering the state. At the same time, audiences across the country were so aghast that a social movement began to amend the cruelty of the Georgia penal system, an effort that quickly proved successful.
  • A method actor, Paul Muni refused to use body doubles, preferring to engage in the backbreaking hard-labor shots himself.
