I Want to Live!

1958 Rated NR 2hr 1m

Barbara Graham (Susan Hayward) -- party girl and prevaricator -- works as a shill, enticing naive men into rigged card games. She tries to reform, but when her new life crumbles, she falls back on her old ways. Soon Barbara and her partners in crime find themselves charged with murder and facing the death penalty. As the wheels of justice spin, Barbara desperately asserts her innocence. Hayward reaped an Oscar for her electrifying portrayal.
