I WANT TO LIVE!
1958, Park Circus/UA, 120 min, USA, Dir: Robert Wise

This harrowing indictment of capital punishment recounts the true-life story of Barbara Graham, a “loose” woman who ran with the wrong crowd and paid the ultimate price. Susan Hayward gives a high-octane, Oscar-winning performance as the good-time girl gone bad. The film’s inexorable last reel shows Wise’s directorial and editing skill at their heart-pounding peak. With Simon Oakland, Theodore Bikel and Virginia Vincent.
