Humorous Crime-Drama

A group of counterfeiters are under investigation by Scotland Yard and the FBI, U.S. Treasury Department. Can they bust up this counterfeiting ring before it's too late?

Lon Chaney plays Louie Struber - a character similar to Lennie Small (Of Mice and Men). Louie ain't too bright, he's tough & mean but sometimes hilarious! Louie has a sidekick named Frankie Dodge played brilliantly by George O'Hanlon. When Louie and Frankie are together expect a few laughs!

To give you an idea of the film's humor: Philip Drake (Hugh Beaumont) says in reference to the size of the counterfeiting plates: "One is larger than the other." Louie responds with "That ain't true. One's smaller than the other." -- Yes I laughed out loud!

Wonderful film, I really enjoyed this one! BTW If you like this film try another Chaney film called "Eyes of the Underworld".

9/10
