Detour on a Road Going Nowhere
While working as a hotel steward in Wyoming, Kimble is forced to run after learning that another hotel employee has stolen hotel funds, and Kimble becomes the suspect. Kimble escapes on a tour bus containing a bickering couple called the Langners, a visiting spinster named Louanne, a local guy named Sandy Baird, and the bus driver. But Kimble becomes trapped when the bus breaks down on a back road, and all the passengers discover his secret when his identity is revealed over the radio. Held at gunpoint, Kimble must find a way to escape by emotionally getting between his various captors before the bus driver returns with the police.moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Opening Narration: Never chase a thief -- not if your own fear of capture is probably greater than his. Even in the fashionable remoteness of Indian Lake Lodge, that fear haunts this clerk who calls himself Stu Manning. At other times, Richard Kimble might have enjoyed vacationing here. But there is no vacation for a fugitive.

    • Closing Narration: The difference between good and bad, between love and hate, is often elusive. The difference between life and death, for Richard Kimble, is always simply his freedom to remain a fugitive.

  • NOTES (2)


    • When the young hipster gets on the bus near the end of Act IV, he says to Kimble, "Ah, Kemo Sabe, Tonto got message," mimicking Jay Silverheels' character in the 1950s TV show, The Lone Ranger. The actor Jay Silverheels played the character Tonto, while Clayton Moore was the title character in this very popular show.
