In the end, & Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang' is a wake-up call of sorts, a warning to those who take personal freedom for granted or place too much trust in a flawed system mired in bureaucracy. Here, on the other hand, is a story in which the protagonist is completely innocent, guilty of nothing more than wanting to strike out on his own and accomplish something constructive after having been through hell in the army in World War I. The state - Georgia - convicts him in error. He was forced into participating in the crime by a stranger, although to be sure he acted guilty enough. And, what with the real James Allen acting as consultant, and the film being based on his autobiographical book, who can really tell how unwilling a participant he was?

Wrongfully convicted for a hold-up, a war vet sentenced to a chain gang escapes and builds a new, respectable existence, only to realize he can never be free of his past. This classic, still-powerful reality-based indictment of the Depression-era prison system is the peak of Warner's 1930s school of social realism. All Critics (22) Top Critics (3) DVD (2). Based on a true story, its style is simple, direct, forceful - even after more than six decades. We hear the age-old argument for harsh punishment from a prison official at a parole hearing - that it not only serves justice, but deters crime and also helps reform prisoners - and this argument is not challenged, at least verbally, by any other character - and yet while watching, we feel and know it to be wrong.
I am a fugitive from the law-but not from justice. Discharged from the army, after the World War, a broken man, I committed a petty crime in Georgia, was caught, convicted, sentenced to ten years on the Georgia Chain Gang. On June 21, 1922, after serving a few months, I made a miraculous escape. Recreational and educational facilities in a Georgia chain gang consist solely of a semi-monthly sermon rendered by an evangelical Baptist minister and the usual background of a few fanatical assistants. These services took place in the mess hall and all prisoners were compelled to attend them. On one side sat the white prisoners; on the other, the Negro prisoners. Facing both groups, the preacher took his stand, using an old soap box as a pulpit and his assistants sat directly behind him on a wooden bench.
Allen refused his old job at the shoe factory because his experience in the army had taught him to dislike regimentation. He has no idea what’s coming. When a fellow hobo invites the hungry Allen out for a hamburger, he enthusiastically tags along, only to realize, to his horror, that he’s been tricked into participating in an armed robbery. American cinema might have become as revolutionary as the Soviet Cinema of the 1920s, or the French New Wave.
