Women & Cocaine presents Paid (1930), Friday April 12th @ 7:30pm
In the month of April, Women & Cocaine is celebrating Joan Crawford – the ultimate movie star.
Paid (1930) stars Crawford in this gritty drama as Mary Turner, a woman accused by her boss of stealing and jailed for a crime she didn’t commit, and after a long spell in prison she’s released, and seeking revenge on those that put her away. Whilst she was in jail, Mary made friends with some crooks who she reconnects with on the outside, and tries to convince the gang that they can cheat people within the law. It’s not long until the police are on her back, the gang gets greedy and falls for a set up; the cops want to catch them all, especially Mary. Find out more details here.
