One Way Ticket is a 1935 American crime film directed by Herbert Biberman starring Lloyd Nolan, Peggy Conklin and Walter Connolly. The film is based on the 1934 novel One-Way Ticket by Ethel Turner.
It was the directorial debut of Biberman, a playwright and theatre director of Marxist political leanings; following some theatrical success in New York, he signed a two-picture deal with Columbia in 1934, and it was followed by Meet Nero Wolfe in 1936.
Writing for The Spectator in 1936, Graham Greene gave the film a mildly good review, judging it to be well acted and describing it as "criticiz[ing] as well as thrill[ing]". Greene drew particular attention to the prison break scene as the film's "one excellent sequence".
