You seem to have a combination of latch to rod problem.
Sure you can open it from inside but you will have to free
the inside door panel "in situ", tough on the hands if you have big ones like mine but it is feasible.
There is 1 tork bolt to undo under the inner handle.
2 cross headed screws (one located underneath the ashtray
and 1 in the rest arm.
Pull off the inner panel (start from the bottom where it is more accessible then sstart to pull off all plastic studs off all along the bottom 1 by one.
Once the panel will becoe pretty loose then the worst is past.
Disconnect all wiring plugs and remove the panel to get access
to the complete inner door frame.
The door handle is connected to the door latch via a vertical rod.
Pull the vertical rod up couple of times, this will restart the pressure back on the door ****.
Mostly, a problem like this indicate a latch spring load break or
a heavy corrosion condition.
Inspect the rod action mechanisim and replace the latch as necessary. (91 model latch are still available by GM)
