Among the harridans and hard-timers in a womens prison, one inmate stands out like a diamond in a box of tarnished costume jewelry. Shes Mary Turner, convicted of a crime she didnt commit. Once an innocent shop girl, now embittered by three years in the pen, Mary has big plans after her release. First shell make a fortune running scams that stay just within the law. Then shell seek revenge on the man who put her behind bars by marrying his guileless son. Joan Crawford got one of her earliest solid dramatic roles in Paid (Grand Hotel was one year in the future), and she made the most of it. Her trenchant portrayal of Mary tough and tender, smart and vulnerable makes this version of the often-filmed story a standout."& **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
