One minutes work and we can win for a year...Yeah, on a chain gang!
One minute's work robbing a bank of valuable bonds with a guard and one of the robbers shot. One minute for a question: is it worth it? Crime doesn't pay and even with public heroes made out of bank robbers, it still don't pay. MGM puts it out plane and simple in this exciting little short that shows the various ways on which this type of crime does not pay. Desperation keeps the gangsters nervous and this leads to mistakes. Oh, the bonds ain't worth much 'cause their hot. Even living in fancy hotels and living it up for a little bit isn't satisfying. In a sense, these crime shorts are even grittier than anything that Robinson, Raft, Cagney or Bogart ever did, because the actors in the leads were minor actors in the features. This makes them even more believable. Even their molls are "just as hot", frustrated by the lack of a life.
