Paid in Full

Movie: Paid in Full
Director: William Dieterle
Produced by: Paramount
Released By:
MPAA Rating:

Lizabeth Scott and Diana Lynn are both effectively cast against type in Paid in Full. Scott plays Jane Langley, the spectacularly self-sacrificial older sister of selfish, reckless Nancy Langley. Though she is in love with Bill Prentice, Jane gives him up to Nancy. And when Jane accidently causes the death of Nancy’s child, she vows to makes amends by the most direct means possible. What follows is within the Production Code guidelines of the era — but just barely. An unabashed “woman’s picture”, Paid in Full doesn’t always play well today, since viewers might be tempted to yell “Get real, Lizabeth!” at the screen. Still, it worked beautifully for its original target audience, especially those who’d read the factual Reader’s Digest article upon which it was based.
