Movie Info

Previously filmed in 1928, the old Willard Mack stage melodrama The Noose was updated and streamlined in 1936 as I'd Give My Life. Hoping that his son Nick (Tom Brown) will follow in his footsteps, jaded gangster-gambler Buck Gordon (Robert Gleckler) arranges to have the boy thrown into reform school. The kid is saved from a life of crime when Buck's ex-wife (Janet Beecher) marries Governor Bancroft (Sir Guy Standing). Enraged that his plans have been thwarted, Buck blackmails his former wife, threatening to reveal her shady past to her present husband. Rushing to his mother's defense, Nick shoots and kills Buck then refuses to explain his motives -- even as he is sentenced to hang for his crime. Frances Drake co-stars as Nick's sweetheart Mary, the role played on Broadway by Barbara Stanwyck.
