Looking for a name of a movie. I know I am being vague,but I can't remember a lot of the plot. The one part I remember is a row of prisoners on a chain gang returning to jail, one escapes from the gang, but another prisoner (At the same time) joins the gang to take his place. (Maybe Devil's island)
The new prisoner (A Jesus like figure) befriends some other prisoners who are planning to escape.
I think Clark Gable may have been one of the actors, but I am not positive.
I would appreciate any help in naming this movie
