Partners In Crime is fairly typical of the films adapted from Edgar Wallace stories and made for very little money at Merton Park Studios within a three week shooting schedule. The basic story line is no more than adequate but the fast pace of the movie keeps the audience interested.

A man arranges for his business partner to be murdered. He employs the services of a man who is so unreliable that he does not dispose of the murder weapon and lets his girl friend know he has mysteriously come into big money. The murder weapon is then stolen and eventually falls into the hands of the police. It is then just a matter of time.

Bernard Lee plays the investigating police officer and does rather well. Unfortunately most of the other actors give substandard performances. As with all the films in this series, the lighting and editing is first class and the movie is never dull.
