    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Opening Narration: No matter how far a man may run, he cannot escape the emotional ties that bind him to his past. So Richard Kimble finds himself drawn to the factory town of Hempstead Mills. The reason: the chance of a small item in the local newspaper.

      • Closing Narration: Richard Kimble, fugitive, on a brief visit to a dead past, is now once more in search of a future.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Barry Morse is credited but doesn't appear.

      • Kimble uses the bomb threat to forge his way past the police. After Kimble submerges Dr. McCallister's bomb in a tank of supply test oil, he quickly constructs a makeshift "explosive" and holds it up so the police won't shoot him when he leaves the building. Kimble then completes his charade by taking McCallister's assistant, Willis, "hostage" and "ordering" her to drive him out of town, when she is really in on helping him escape.
