||The case against capital punishmnet|
This harrowing, fact-based story of convicted murderess Barbara Graham is one of the most eloquent pleas against the barbarity of capital punishment ever filmed. Susan Hayward gives an explosively emotional performance in the role that brought her a much-deserved Academy Award and the presitgious scroll from the New York Film Critics as the best acress of 1958. Robert Wise's movie is one of those rare films that is such an extraordinary experience, it may fundamentally change the way the viewer feels about its subject. That is precisely the effect that it had on me.

||What a shame|
I would be hesitant in ordering any more movies in the future,as on recieving I want to live it was not compatible with our region. We were given a refund which I appreciated but I think there should be a coding of some sort when placing orders to save time and disappointments. Alan Smith.

This is one of Hayward's best. Just as great as I Want to Live. She has an amazing ability for each role played, i. e., check out The Jane Forman Story--another great effort from this star.
