Clark Gable's last picture under his MGM contract. He first signed with the studio in 1930 (he'd first appeared at the studio as an extra in The Merry Widow (1925)). By the 1950's his box office was spotty and MGM found it difficult to justify his $500,000 per year salary. Gable too was anxious to enter into far more lucrative percentage deals and would do so exclusively for the remaining 6 years of his life. See more »

As a huge Gable fan Betrayed is by no means the King's greatest movie. However, as with all of his films, it is certainly not bad and I was interested in the characters and the development of the plot right up until the end. Acting-wise, the three stars, Gable, Lana Turner and Victor Mature do a fine job with Turner looking almost unrecognisable from earlier roles.
If you're a Turner or Gable fan I'm sure you would enjoy this movie but the film has enough drama, tension and intrigue to keep you interested anyway!
