A Man Betrayed 1941
A workmanlike picture made during the actor's stay with b-movie studio Republic Pictures, A Man Betrayed casts Wayne in a decidedly current yarn involving a mystery-shrouded death, corrupt politicians, a beautiful rich girl, and one fabulous nightclub. The film opens on a stormy night in a mid-sized city, as a drunken young man is seen stumbling out of that fab hotspot, the Club Inferno (a joint whose business card reads "40 Beautiful Girls, 39 Costumes"). As he staggers across the street, a nearby lamp gets struck by lightning and the man collapses, dead. The crowd assembled around the corpse find a bullet hole in his chest, however, and the police quickly determine that he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
John Wayne's character, aw-shucks country lawyer Lynn Hollister, comes into this city wanting to know more about the shady circumstances of his childhood friend's death...
