The "Crime Does Not Pay" series is great fun, a look back at a simpler time in our country, particularly as far as criminal law is concerned. Time marches on and so does the legislative process, and law school must be considerably harder now than in the early-mid 20th century.
In this entry, Walter Kingsford plays a crooked lawyer who is able to get criminals off scot-free for a handsome fee. His main client is Joe Sawyer, who seems to be a habitual criminal with lots of money and who keeps getting caught. Law enforcement then decides to 'set a trap' for him, which seems to be more trouble than just tailing or 'putting the heat' on Sawyer.
It is all very entertaining and fun to contemplate the streamlined trial procedures and the speed at which legal action took place. This one I rated a seven despite the fact most of the story would stretch out for years nowadays.
