Wise’s didactic anti-capital-punishment melodrama locks us up with Susan Hayward—previously a low-level, free-spirited crook, she becomes implicated in a murder for which she professes her innocence, and for which the sentence is death. Hayward gives a gripping, Academy Award winning performance in this based-in-reality exposé, as she attempts to have heard her final appeals for freedom.
