Why Must I Die? (1960)

Why Must I Die? (1960)

American International Pictures


 Roy Del Ruth


 Richard Bernstein (screenplay), Herbert G. Luft (additional dialogue), George W. Waters (original story & screenplay)

Debra Paget commits a murder for which Terry Moore (as club singer Lois King) is arrested, tried, and condemned to die. The story line wanders through the trial and Miss King's final hours on Death Row. The true killer is finally ready to confess, but already Miss King (who has by now been strapped into the electric chair) is at risk. Will she be rescued in the nick of time?

Duane Eddy with Lee Hazelwood, "The Girl On Death Row"
