Full movie description "The Payoff":Joe is a reporter who is looking for his big break and he gets it when he takes over George Gorman's sports column. Marty is a hood who would fix any sporting event he could and Joe keeps the pressure of the paper on him. His wife Maxine, however, wants only the finer things in life and when Joe is on the road, she becomes Marty's Gal. That and the money that she owes Marty ends Joe's career as a New York Register columnist and starts his new career as a drunk. But Connie, who has had a crush on Joe for years, will try to make him the reporter he once was.
Reviews of the The Payoff"The Payoff" (1935) is listed as a noir by critic John Grant, which was reason enough for me it check it out. In addition, the director was Robert Florey. I found that the story is indeed a noir. It doesn't look like a noir photographically, however. I guess that makes it a proto-noir.
The story is a good one and quite involved for a picture that's just a little over an hour long. James Dunn is a reporter whose wife, Claire Dodd, is self-centered and vain. She's got expensive tastes. Dunn's hooked on her and she stays with him as long as he has the money. He gets a promotion to sports writer, but this exposes him to the wiles of a racketeer (Alan Dinehart) who fixes sports contests. A better woman is at Dunn's elbow at the paper (Patricia Ellis), but he's oblivious. Instead Dodd becomes more and more of a femme fatale as the story darkens and Dunn's troubles multiply.
