HOBA8T H-r s:ream bounced against the steel walls as they dragged a twisting raging Barbara Graham back to her cell! They had just branded her a murderess —but this wasn't the only mark that life and her underworld "friends" had seared on her body. There were the marks of the petty crimes she committed — stains that all the police blotters in the country couldn't soak up. And there were the scars you couldn't see. The scars that Barbara Graham, the party girl, carried in her for every man. Barbara Graham's affairs...her mistakes...her trial...a thousand incidents defied the censor. Then a Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter, Ed Montgomery-who had led the pack howling for her conviction-uncovered startling evidence that shed doubt on her guilt... and her story became something more than it was—a story that will never die! It took courage to bring Barbara Graham's real-life, real-shock story to the screen... and the producers of "I WANT TO LIVE!" did not compromise with reality in exposing life to film! And to all this add the superb performance of Susan Hayward, who won Academy Award nominations'for "Smash Up", "My Foolish Heart" and "I'll Cry Tomorrow". From the flesh and fire that was Barbara Graham...she has fashioned a portrayal that will burn itself into your memory. Above all —this story was lifted body and soul from life...with no whitewash or watering down... and that is the hurricane force that makes this picture so important, great!
