The car looks terrific, but the owner of the used-car lot, Nick, is actually a racketeer who sells dangerously unfit cars to unsuspecting buyers. When the brakes fail on one of the cars Nick sold, tragedy ensues and the police are called in to prove that Crime Does Not Pay. Written by

Predictable short of the "Crime does not pay" series
This is a predictable short of the "Crime Does Not Pay" series. No surprises, but it does hold one's interest for the 15-20 minutes of the film. It also provides an historical perspective for our current consumer protection laws. This short is broadcast occasionally on TCM.
