Description:
The Making and Influence of I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang uses a complete biography of Robert E. Burns, a World War I veteran who was coerced into taking part in a petty crime in Atlanta, Georgia. Sentenced to a harsh sentence on a barbaric chain gang, he twice escaped and remained on the run for decades, aided only by his minister-poet brother, Vincent G. Burns. Their collaborative book, I Am a Fugitive from a Georgia Chain Gang! led to Darryl F. Zanuck and Mervyn Leroy's hard-hitting film adaptation released by Warner Bros. in 1932. The book simultaneously traces the making and influence of the film and the Burns brothers' continuing efforts to obtain a pardon, which never came. A truly unique volume, it exposes a shameful miscarriage of justice, while also covering the powerful Warner Bros. film, starring Paul Muni as Robert Burns, supported by Glenda Farrell, Allen Jenkins, Preston Foster, and many other members of the Warners' 'stock company,' and its imitators that followed over the coming decades.
