I have one of his fine performances in the film,  "I Want To Live" (1958 Figaro productions) The life (and death) of the convicted murderer Barbara Graham. This film features, Susan Hayward, Simon Oakland, Stafford Repp and Theodore Bikel. (Bikel appeared as a California State sponsored Psychologist).

The story was a dramatized biography of her life, trial and execution in California's Gas Chamber. Graham was the last woman executed in their Gas Chamber, and her trial changed California's state law.

Buy the black and white DVD and watch it.
