Paid Reviews:

"Paid" is the storyline of Mary Turner (Joan Crawford), who spent three years in the pen for stealing from her boss (Gilder's Department Store)--a crime which she didn't commit. She vows revenge as she's dragged away. We see the sentencing phase of her trial with an inept defense lawyer and a vicious, contemptuous DA who keeps interrupting her. Indeed, one recurring theme of this movie is its criticism of the justice system--the DA and the cops care only about pleasing the rich by harassing the poor. According to Vieira, Sin in Soft Focus: Pre-Code Hollywood p. 19 (1999), Crawford got the role when Norma Shearer went on maternity leave. Vieira also tells that a five-minute war stage in the women's shower in prison was slash from the movie by the studio. There are stills of Crawford and the war stage at pp. 24-25.Mary learns some law while in the joint and she and her prison mate Aggie search some intelligent methods to create cash and frustrate the cops by staying just "within the law" (the game of the enjoy from which the movie is drawn as well as the 1939 remake). Mary hangs out with Aggie's gang of petty criminals led by Joe Garson. Joe is, in fact, a type and decent person who just can't tell no to the large payoff. Meanwhile, Mary seduces and marries Gilder's son--just to take revenge on the boy who falsely accused her of stealing.While the final portions of "Paid" receive rather contrived (there's a major heist which goes badly wrong) and the ending is melodramatic, I think "Paid" was cute nice and Crawford was excellent. The weak ratings assigned by IMDb players to this movie are not justified. The movie is involving and it has some necessary things to tell about class and justice.


This is one of Joan Crawford's greatest pre-code films. It is very difficult to find, but worth the effort! Through her character's evolution, Joan is able to present off a wide tons of emotions, proving she did have nice acting skill early in her career. Typical of the early Talkies, most of the acting style is a bit theatrical, so viewers not used to watching early classics may feel it has a dated quality. But if that doesn't bother you, you will search that the storyline is riveting, the characters are colorful, and the performance by Crawford is fabulous. Crawford's character, Mary Turner, is by far the most fascinating, and commands attention. We see her start as a confused, frumpy easy woman unjustly imprisoned for a crime she didn't commit. Then we watch her grow into a hard-boiled, intelligent, sophisticated criminal, hellbent on revenge. She grew to become what she had been wrongly accused of. You can't support but pity her lost innocence and respect her determination, despite its criminal intent.A must-see for anyone who loves pre-code film, gangster films, or Joan Crawford.


This was a find. Nice acting, a nice plot and dialog method ahead of its time. I know of no another 1930 film with its sophistication of dialog. Nice directing by Sam Wood making sure that all of the intricacies of plot were brought out.Joan Crawford was a wrongfully convicted convict out to exact revenge upon the shop owner/magnate who sent her up the river who squads with Robert Armstrong to become rich shadily but by means "Within the Law".The final confrontation in the DA's office requires that you pay attention. This film is ripe for a remake. I see George Clooney as Robert Armstrong's hero and Leonardo De Caprio as the son. Robert Armstrong was very powerful in this role.It's TCM keeper.
