Nothing is going to fix a firearm that has been neglected that much for that long. However you need to get it opened so you can make it safe to scrap.
Take the grips off, if you can, and drop the whole thing in a tub of penetrating oil and leave it there for 24 hours. Try opening it. No need to be gentle with the cylinder.
DO NOT pull the trigger and fire the bullet out! It's entirely likely the bullet, if the cartridge goes bang at all, will get stuck in the barrel. The primer alone can do that.
Spelling and grammar count!
