Dead Man Walking has nothing on this!!!

Oh man, I saw this when I was about 9 at hotel somewhere in Pennsylvania (this was in 1977!) and the thing that haunted me for years, years!! - was the image of Alan Alda strapped into the gas chamber and being executed.

The admonition of the guard to 'breathe deeply, it'll be easier' was so chilling that I can remember it to this day! I've never seen the movie since but those images are so vivid I can't forget them!

On a political note, it makes you think about capital punishment and whether or not you're for or against it, it does spark a debate on how punishment is administered.
