Charles Bronson and Lola Albright
27 October 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Woman Who Wanted to Live" stars Charles Bronson as Roy Bardon, wounded thief on the run, who kills the attendant when he robs a gas station. The next car to drive up belongs to Nita (Lola Albright), who is forced to help Roy make his getaway, promising him anything so long as he allows her to live. The unlikely pair must contend with road blocks, flat tires, and a trio of delinquents aiming to rape the girl. Bronson's encounter with the punks almost looks to be a trial run for "Death Wish." Lola was riding high on the successful PETER GUNN series, which led to a concurrent singing career, while Bronson was soon to abandon television by 1967 for a starring movie career in Europe.
