Iron clad alibi
24 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Crime Does Not Pay Series No. 2. A notorious gangster is murdered and the police believe that another gangster, Leo Rinelli, committed the murder. However, there is no hard evidence of this and worse yet, from the police's point of view, is that Rinelli has a cast iron alibi. He was at the movies and can prove it because he was called away to take a telephone call. The police delve deeper and come up with an interesting albeit old hat resolution to the problem. The short is filled with stalwart character actors whose faces will be familiar if not their names. Edward Norris as Rinelli does a great job and it's surprising that he didn't have an even more illustrious career, although he did dozens of movies.
