Product Description

Released in 1937 and partly based on the legend of Bonnie and Clyde, You Only Live Once was directed by Fritz Lang (Metropolis, Fury), starring Oscar® winning actor Henry Fonda (Grapes Of Wrath, Twelve Angry Men) and Sylvia Sidney (Fury, Blood On The Run). Eddie Taylor (Fonda) is an ex-convict who can't get a break on the "outside". He marries Joan Graham (Sidney) who like her husband is one of life's losers. Framed on a murder rap, he is forced on the run with his wife and baby in tow. In trying to avoid capture, Taylor becomes a murderer for real, condemning himself and Graham to an early demise.

Extras:
  • An Introduction by George Wilson
  • Audio interview with Fritz Lang recorded at the National Film Theatre in 1962
  • Inside You Only Live Once - production takes from a film in the making

DVD Description

Henry Fonda and Sylvia Sidney star in this classical film about two people down on their luck who become embroiled in a murder investigation. Forced to run from the police can they escape a tragic end?

"You only live once" is here presented in a crisp, sharply contrasted print with an excellent audio level - quite simply, you could never see any black and white film of the 1930's in better quality than this. It makes the photography look stunning.

I hadn't seen this in a long while, and I'd forgotten how good it is - it's usually "sold" as a crime melodrama, but it's equally one of classic cinema's great love stories. There is real chemistry between Henry Fonda and waif-like Sylvia Sydney and their tragic love story should move even the hardest of hearts. It's a story set against the background of depression America, and of one man's struggle, eventually lost, to go straight and throw off his criminal past. Henry Fonda is particularly effective and his defeat by a particularly cruel sequence of events mainly outside of his control is harrowing to watch.

This is definitely a film which deserves better recognition and it's rarity now - it's not been on TV for many years - is quite a scandal really.

I thoroughly enjoyed this - if you like 1930's drama you are in for a treat!

One Fritz Lang's best American movies 'you only live once' anticipates the great film noir classics of the forties. while the DVD is of good quality the Spanish bluray release (Solo se vive una vez) is of superior quality and can often be picked up at lower price from amazon.es. If you by from amazon.es themselves rather than a third party seller the uk postage is usually around 2 euros cheaper.

Quite a good film actually. The script is good, and I believed in the characters.The audio interview with Fritz Lang is longer than the film itself.
