The Last Mile is a 1932 American pre-Code crime drama film directed by Samuel Bischoff and starring Howard Phillips and Preston Foster. The picture is based on John Wexley's 1930 Broadway play, The Last Mile. Howard Phillips appeared in both the play and the film but in different roles. In 1959 the play was adapted a second time into a film of the same name starring Mickey Rooney.
Richard Walters is condemned to death for a crime he claims he did not commit. While the drama inside the prison unfolds, his friends on the outside are trying to find evidence that he is innocent.
A clip from this film was used by progressive rock band Rush as their introduction to the song "Lock and Key" during its performance on the "Hold Your Fire" tour, later released on the "A Show of Hands" laserdisc. The VHS and DVD versions of the film omit the song.
