Plot summary

Kimble escapes a trap at a trainyard, then makes it to Pinedale, Washington, a small town, where he meets Andrea Cross (actress Antoinette Bower). She takes an instant liking to Kimble and brings him home with her so he can help her prepare for her ceramics exhibition. When he arrives he meets her friend Bob Howe (actor Paul Mantee), a deputy.

The next day Andrea hears of the escape of Kimble on the radio, and his description, and realizes that "Ben Lewis" is really Richard Kimble. She offers Kimble her car to make his escape, suggesting that he wreck it over a mountainside to throw off the police.

Kimble is shot by Howe, bails out of the vehicle, and flees into the mountains, where he comes across Mallory (actor Laurence Naismith), an older man who has fled society and has not seen another person for 14 years. Mallory patches up Kimble and tries to sell him on his philosophy and lifestyle, using his dogs to make sure Kimble sticks around, contrary to his supposed desire for isolation. A series of further complications follow.
