Our Score
James Stewart plays a habitual criminal who is released after 40 years in jail and wants to claim $25,000 of prison pay that he has banked legitimately. But the bank manager has run off with it, forcing Stewart back to his old ways. The star chews up the scenery, while George Kennedy, Strother Martin and a young Kurt Russell offer expert support. The film's title in the UK was Dynamite Man from Glory Jail.


Three ex-convicts leave jail intent on going straight and opening up a general store with the money one of them has saved during his long prison sentence. Unfortunately, they reckon without their former jailer, who is determined to get his hands on the money, and a local banker who has already spent it. Depression-era drama, with James Stewart, George Kennedy, Strother Martin, Kurt Russell and Anne Baxter.
