Crime Does Not Pay
27 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Soak the Old (1940)

*** (out of 4)

31st film in MGM's "Crime Does Not Pay" series takes a look at old people being fooled into joining a fake pension fund raiser, which is being ran by racketeers. This film isn't as good as some of the others that I've seen but it still remains highly entertaining with some nice performances (including Ralph Morgan) and a nice story.

This isn't available on DVD yet but you can catch this film and others in the series on Turner Classic Movies. Other episodes can be found on various Warner DVDs.
