Lizabeth Scott and Diana Lynn Shine
12 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.

Lynn has a baby, but she's psychotic with jealousy and hates sharing the child with Cummings or anyone. After a few plot twists which lead to divorce. Scott marries Cummings and has a baby even though she has the same disease her mother had.

Scott often played rotten ladies, sort of a queen of noir films in the 40s and 50s, but here plays the goody good girl, while perky Lynn, often cast in kid sister roles, seemingly exults in 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.
