This is a 1966 American drama film directed by Arthur Penn and starring Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, and Robert Redford, about a series of events set into motion by a prison break.
Because one of the two escapees is Charlie "Bubber" Reeves (Redford), wrongly assumed to be responsible for a murder, the escape causes a stir in a nearby town where Bubber is a well-known figure.
The film deals with racism, in which black men are harassed by white men, with sexual revolution, in which many of the characters are openly engaged in affairs, and with small-town corruption, in which the sheriff is falsely assumed to be in the pocket of the man who helped appoint him, as well as with vigilantism, in which the townspeople openly defy the sheriff in their search for Bubber.
Although the movie stars a number of famous actors and actreeses, the focus of the various themes is blurred so much that it turns out a confused party with too much noise.

Seduced by the star-studding, but this mid-60s vehicle is a screeching bit of misery-in-motion that adds oil-fueled redneck flames to the cheap noir genre
