Essentially the Brit version of I Want To Live!, with Dors giving a strikingly moving performance as a young girl awaiting the death penalty. From reading about her, it seems she was a bit like Monroe, her talents mostly overlooked and her curves the only thing given focus. She proves her worth as an actress here in spades. 4 easy stars
Or how Diana Dors arrived at the 1956 Cannes Festival as a blonde bombshell and left as a respected and critically acclaimed actress. Her portrayal of this young woman who awaits death penalty is absolutely stunning and very modern.
Great camera work and cinematography that add up to the feeling of suffocation.
