Audience Reviews for Two Seconds

An excellent performance by Edward G. Robinson highlights this story of a man who relives some key incidents of his life during the two seconds it takes to execute him for murder. I'm not familiar with Vivienne Osborne, the film's lead, but she did a good job in conveying a trashy dance hall dame who tricks Eddie (named John Allen here) into marrying her, then turns on him when he becomes ill after witnessing the falling death of his best friend. Overly dramatic at times, but still a film I'm glad I discovered (with the help of TCM...thanks!)
