In this original teaming of Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor, George Caldwell (Wilder) witnesses a murder aboard a train, but no one believes him. When a detective finally agrees to look into the case, he's bumped off as well. Although George appears to be next on the hit list, he manages to escape -- only to be hauled off to jail by a local cop. With the help of small-time criminal Grover Muldoon (Pryor), will George manage to break free?
