WHY IS THIS NOT ON DVD....!?!?!?!
Paid. MGM, 1930. Directed by Sam Wood, 80 minutes.
Joan stars as ex-con "Mary Turner," wrongly accused and now out to get revenge, with the help of her gangster friends, on the powerful men who set her up.
Based on the 1912 play "Within the Law" by Bayard Veiller, two silent film versions were made with that name: in 1917 (starring Alice Joyce) and 1923 (starring Norma Talmadge).
This time around, MGM star (and wife of MGM production head Thalberg) Norma Shearer wanted the part, but became pregnant, so Joan took over.
