Goofs

The movie is set in Oklahoma. Several references are made to execution in the gas chamber. Oklahoma has never used the gas chamber for executions. Electrocution was used from statehood (the first in 1915) until 1966, using an electric chair, "Old Sparky". Since 1977, the prescribed method is lethal injection. See more »

A poor telling of a socially significant story
25 July 2001 | by =G=See all my reviews

"Too Young to Die" tells of an attractive young woman of low intelligence who's raised by a degenerate mother in a low class environment and sexually abused by men resulting in tragedy. This unfortunate flick has a story of some social significance but fails to bring it to the screen with the bitter reality, heart and compassion is deserves. Lewis and Pitt offer good performances but the film suffers from melodrama, stereotypical clichés, poor directing, and a mediocre screen play with an obvious made-for-tv presentation. Recommended only for those interested in the early work of Lewis and Pitt.
