Audience Reviews for Escape by Night


In this simplistic morality play from the 1930's, a street gang on-the-lam and hiding out from the law on a farm change their lawless ways with a little taste of the simple life. It's cute, inoffensive, and a lot of the focus goes to the German Shepard who lives on the farm.
