TITLE: 13 STEPS TO DEATH
FORMAT: British Quad (30 x 40 inches)
STARS: Terry Moore, Debra Paget, Bert Freed. Director: Roy Del Ruth.
NOTES: 1950's B-list pin-ups Terry Moore and Debra Paget starred in Roy Del Ruth's final film. It deals with the same subject matter as 'I Want To Live' (1958) loosely based on the death-row ordeal of Barbara Graham. Unlike I Want To Live, however, this movie is pure exploitation, with the POSTER proclaiming "the naked shameful life of a good-time girl". That, and the presence of Howard Hughes playmate, Terry Moore, would no doubt have packed 'em in to the movie theatres in 1959 but it did not win them any Oscars! Plenty of nods to Alfred Hitchcock throughout and also a theme song written and sung by Duane Eddy.
CONDITION: Grade A. Folded, as issued.
