"Watch a pre-code film"
I assumed pre-code films had crazy stuff like people marrying monkeys and real on screen murders.... but no it's not true.
I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang is a thoughtful film about the Man sticking it to the commoner. It's full of tension and grief and very thrilling moments. Paul Muni, who I'm not really familiar with, is such a charismatic lead and he made me worry about his well being and feel bad for him. The film is shot beautifully and the script is really a wonderful take down of the criminal justice system and government.
I liked it.
