Paid in Full DVD 1950 Robert Cummings Drama Black and White

Stars: Robert Cummings, Lizabeth Scott, Diana Lynn

Paid in Full boasts terrific work from two underrated actresses, Lizabeth Scott and Diana Lynn, here playing sisters. Scott is the older one, the sensible sister who has raised Lynn after their mother died in childbirth from something called placenta previa. Scott works in a department store as an illustrator while Lynn, a spoiled little witch, works as a model. Lynn is trying to hook a rich husband but when that fails she grabs upwardly mobile Robert Cummings, who works with Scott and is Scott’s secret love. But it’s no secret to Lynn.

Scott often played rotten ladies, sort of a queen of noir films in the 40’s and 50’s, but here plays the goody good girl, while perky Lynn, often cast in kid sister roles, seemingly enjoys playing the witch. Cummings stands around. Eve Arden plays the man-hungry co-worker, Stanley Ridges the kindly doctor, and Carol Channing makes her film debut. A rather lurid women’s picture but well worth catching.

This movie is also known as Bitter Victory. Caught this film by accident some years ago. It’s a soap, for sure, but you find it unexpectedly impressive. Both the acting and the direction make the teary script work far better than it had a right to. A thoroughly, impressively professional job all around!

Tagline: The Story of a Woman’s Bitter Victory

Lizabeth Scott also does a great job co-starring in I Walk Alone and The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, where she stars alongside Barbara Stanwyck.
