Synopsis: Ex-con Steve Lacey (Gene Nelson) is called upon by his former prison associates to help them rob a bank and escape to Mexico.

Purr Blur: After essentially strong-arming Steve and his wife Ellen (Phyllis Kirk) into going with them, the thugs take them to a different area. As Ben (Charles Bronson) leads them through an alley to a staircase, a cat which is between some trash cans runs away.
