PUNQ’s review published on Letterboxd:
The fact that I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang is based on a true story only helps make the story even more devastating. It's really a provocative and heartbreaking film about law and punishment. Mervyn LeRoy really directs an amazing piece of work here and Paul Muni does an equal great job in the lead as he did in Scarface the same year. What a year he had starring in two of the most important movies to come out of 1932!
