| One of Crawford's best performances
Addmittedly, I'm a big Crawford fan. That's why I was thrilled to see her in PAID. Her role in this film is one of the most diverse of her entire career. She begins as a downtrodden, simple girl, wrongly accused of a crime, and she depicts this very believably. Then prison life hardens her, and she learns more than just street smarts, resulting in a sassy, savvy woman on a mission.

Crawford shines above all the other actors in this film. Her character is complex and interesting. The film overall may seem too "quaint" for anyone who is not already a fan of early talkies, but those who love this genre will love this film, and will love Crawford's performance. It's unfortunate that it is so difficult to find PAID on video, or more classic film fans would be able to see one of Crawford greatest early performances.
