| Not quite as good as the usual "Crime Does Not Pay" film.
The "Crime Does Not Pay" series from MGM is an excellent series of short films that illustrate crime stories and ALWAYS result in the criminals receiving justice. It's actually amazing how high the quality and how entertaining these films are even today. However, of all the films in the series I've seen so far, "A Thrill for Thelma" is among my least favorite. Now I am NOT saying it's bad, but it does suffer from an ending which just seemed a bit too preachy.

The story begins at a women's prison. The warden is talking with another law enforcement official and begins to talk about Thelma--a woman who just wanted too much. Then, they ask Thelma to tell them her story and what follows is the story of a good time girl who didn't initially mean to break the law. But, she was an idiot and when her boyfriend began committing robberies, she liked the money and thrill so much she agreed to help him. Her lack of conscience and foolishness, not surprisingly, result in her eventual capture. Overall, decent but not among the best--mostly because of the heavy-handed ending.
