Fritz Lang's second American film... remains one of his all-time greatest. Full Review

Rating: 89/100 -- It stands as a clear precursor for such revered love-on-the-run films as Bonnie and Clyde, Badlands and They Live By Night, but is perhaps better than any of them. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- A top social drama, inspired by the real Bonnie and Clyde. Lang is in prime directing form.

This picture has both excitement and genuine feeling, and is recommended for everyone, except the very young. Full Review

Rating: A -- It always seems to be night and raining for its alienated main characters, who have only their love for each other to keep out the cold from the world. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Fritz Lang's masterpiece beautifully restored and back in print.

Three-time loser Eddie Taylor (Henry Fonda) has had enough of life behind bars. Determined to make good after an early parole from prison, Eddie finds devoted sweetheart Joan (Sylvia Sidney) waiting for him as he is released back into society. They soon marry and hope for a bright future together, but Eddie’s past confronts him at every turn making it difficult for them to survive.

Fate then deals the young couple a cruel blow when Eddie’s convicted of bank robbery and murder all the while proclaiming his innocence. Desperate to escape from prison before he’s executed, Eddie gets hold of a gun and makes it past the prison gates, but not without tragic consequences.

A haunting masterpiece, You Only Live Once was director Fritz Lang’s second American effort (after Fury) and a forerunner to numerous "criminal lovers on the run" films like Gun Crazy and Bonnie and Clyde. Made in the midst of the Great Depression, this unforgettable tale illuminates the cynical underbelly of American life that was otherwise lacking in late 30s cinema and delivers just as potent a narrative today as it did eighty years ago.
