San Quentin prison inmate Arnie Judlow asks his twin brother Bill and his wife Ruth to assist him in a daring escape plan.
The film was not actually shot in widescreen. It was converted to CinemaScope in the final print after having been shot in standard Academy ratio, much like some films which are "matted" after having been shot in Academy ratio. The process used was contemporary of SuperScope and a forerunner of Super 35. It was filmed using spherical lenses at an aspect ratio of 1.37:1. In the printing process, the images were cropped to a height of 2 perforations giving them an aspect ratio of 2.36:1. The images were then stretched vertically to a height of 4 perforations, at which point they conformed to the standard CinemaScope-2 format.
The opening credits are stamped on the screen by a hand.
