Movie Overview | Lonely Are the Brave

Tagline: Life can never cage a man like this!

A fiercely independent cowboy arranges to have himself locked up in jail in order to then escape with an old friend who has been sentenced to the penitentiary.

Cowboy Jack Burns decides to get himself locked up so that he may break his best friend Paul Bondi out of jail. However, when he gets there, he discovers that Bondi does not wish to be released. As a result, Burns is able to escape on his own, and the subsequent pursuit by Sheriff Johnson, who is using a helicopter and many jeeps, takes place in the mountains.
