Stranger on the Run is a dramatic Western television film which in some countries premiered in cinemas. The first broadcast was on NBC on October 31, 1967. The film stars Henry Fonda, Anne Baxter and Michael Parks, and was directed by Don Siegel.


Former inmate and alcoholic Ben Chamberlain (Fonda) comes to a town inquiring about a woman. When she is found dead, Sheriff McKay (Parks), at the suggestion of his friend Hotchkiss (Dan Duryea), organises a human hunting party, incorrectly thinking that Chamberlain is the culprit.

Chamberlain must cross the desert and reach the border. McKay gets there before him. Chamberlain comes across a homesteader (Baxter) and they start to develop a connection, but this is quickly cut short when the posse arrives.
