Bank Robbers 'On The Lam'
11 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

It seems that as the series progressed, the "Crime Does Not Pay" episodes got better and better. "Come Across" is one of the best so far, a tense chronology of bank robbers in a robbery gone bad. The gang becomes more desperate as the police and the 'Feds' close in (The bank robbery in question becomes a federal case when a dropped pistol found at the scene proves to be stolen from a federal installation).

Familiar faces in this one are Horace McMahon and Milburn Stone as well as Matt McHugh, brother of Frank McHugh. A key role is played with feeling and gusto by Bernard Nedell, whom I had not seen before, as the leader of the beleaguered gang.

Good pacing, good story and an overall good entry in a series that got off to an unpromising start in 1935. My rating of seven is to indicate that it's well worth your time.
