Full movie description "I'd Give My Life":The movie, like the play "The Noose" on which it is based, is the story of a young man sentenced to be hanged for murdering a racketeer because, in order to protect others whom he admires, he refuses to offer justification for the killing, either in court or afterward. Everyone involved wants the sentence to be commuted, but the law is implacable.
Reviews of the I'd Give My LifeSome of the same plot elements in I'd Give My Life are also found in Manhattan Melodrama. And certainly this film qualifies as a melodrama. Looking at both films you can see the advantages in production values at MGM versus some fly by night independent outfit.
The film is based on Broadway play from the 20s called The Noose that ran for 197 showings in the 1926-27 season. Among the cast in one of the small roles was the as yet unknown Barbara Stanwyck.
Tom Brown is a young, but charming hoodlum who shows the toughness and vulnerability of being a foundling and raised in an orphanage. He's a pet protégé of racketeer Robert Geckler who Governor John Standing has promised to get rid of in his state.
When Brown balks at an order, Geckler gives him an account of his real history and truly shows what a rat he is. Brown shoots him and then offers no real defense in the crime.
I can't say much more but the Governor is under pressure to commute the sentence. In the end he's shown why.
The women in the cast all have vital roles and they are Janet Beecher as the Governor's wife, Helen Lowell as his mother, and Frances Drake as the torch singer carrying a torch for Brown.
At a studio like MGM this could have been another Manhattan Melodrama. But the production is pretty shoddy.
