Audience Reviews for Payment Deferred

good stuff sad though & no actor delivers the pathos better than laughton think hunchback of notre dame


Charles Laughton delivers yet another powerful performance in a very well written story. Ray Milland is great in an early supporting role. Nice cimetography and a great pace. It?s a bit melodramatic at times but it was always interesting thanks to Laughton.
