DescriptionI Want to Live! (United Artists, 1958). One Sheet (27" X 41") Advance.
Based on the infamous case of Barbara Graham, a convicted murderess and prostitute who was put to death in San Quentin's gas chamber in 1955, this classic, yet controversial film was a stunning showcase for actress Susan Hayward, who won a well-deserved Oscar for the role. Although parts of the movie are highly fictionalized - the screenplay implies that Graham was innocent, although there was little doubt of her guilt in real life - the climactic execution scene was painstakingly researched by director Robert Wise, who visited San Quentin on several occasions to ensure that every detail was correct. Offered here is the scarce and desirable teaser or advance one sheet for the film, which features an actual photo of the real Barbara Graham in the last moments of her life. Prior to restoration the poster had slight fold wear and some minor chipping in the upper vertical fold within the title. Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
