Solid and entertaining.
3 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

During the 1930s and 40s, MGM made a string of "Crime Does Not Pay" shorts--all of which illustrate excellent police work and serve to convince viewers that crooks ultimately WILL get caught. It's interesting, but these films usually showed a lot more realistic police procedures than the regular movies at the various studios (many full-length films portrayed the cops as idiots). In addition, they tell great stories that even when seen today are quite satisfying.

The film is told through a flashback. The story begins with a mobster being killed--and the most logical killer is a fellow mobster. However, this suspect has a seemingly air-tight alibi--one in which it appears he went to great lengths to establish where he was and when. But, thanks to nice work by the police, they are able to prove exactly how the guy was able to be at one place while killing another at a different location. Very enjoyable and well-written.
