I Want To Live! Review


Good
You know the end of The Player? When Julia Roberts sits in the gas chamber and Bruce Willis rushes in to save her? Altman is making fun of I Want to Live!, in part at least, a film in which Susan Hayward overacts so superbly en route to execution that they couldn't help but give her an Oscar. Hayward is, in reality, nothing short of a ridiculous ham in this movie, which makes it perfect for anyone who wants their TV to shrilly scream at them for two hours. Based on the grim true story of Barbara Graham, executed at San Quentin in 1953.
