Senior Classic Movie Showing on Friday

Come and view a film from 1958 starring Tony Curtis and Sidney Portier.

"Nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture, this movie is a fast-moving blend of action and suspense. Escaping from a Southern work gang, the two men are bound together by an unbreakable iron chain and separated by a hatred towards each other. Relentlessly pursued by a posse and bloodhounds, they put aside their differences to survive." Licensing restrictions prevent us from promoting the title of the film.
