Overview

Synopsis

Sin's Payday
Defense attorney Forrest Stanley insists upon hiring himself out to gangsters, much to the dismay of his wife Dorothy Revier. She walks out on Stanley, whereupon he goes into a personal and professional slump. Our hero is given a new lease on life when he adopts orphan Mickey McGuire (later known as Mickey Rooney), only to be plunged into the depths of despair again when the boy is killed in the crossfire of a mob shootout. Immediately switching gears, Stanley becomes a crusading prosecutor, sending his former criminal clients to the pen -- and wining back the love of Revier in the process. Sin's Payday is among the first films in which a criminal's recorded confession is entered into evidence -- and never mind the questionable circumstances through which the confession is obtained! ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
