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.

CRY TOUGH
1959, Park Circus/UA, 83 min, USA, Dir: Paul Stanley

This late entry in the noir cycle, based on Irving Shulman’s popular novel, grafts social realism onto its crime-thriller spine. It’s highlighted by a star-making performance from John Saxon as a Puerto Rican ex-con pulled every which way by familial pressures, a love affair (with beautiful co-star Linda Cristal) and the lure of his former gang. With Joseph Calleia, Harry Townes, Don Gordon and Perry Lopez. Not on DVD!
