| Jack Pot is a pretty good Crime Does Not Pay short.
Just watched this Crime Does Not Pay short from M-G-M on the I Love You Again DVD. This one concerns the illegal profit of slot machines displayed in various places where unsuspecting customers don't know how they're getting ripped off. An owner of a dry cleaning business, however, doesn't want one and gets in trouble as a result. I'll stop there and just say this was quite an interesting short, if not a very exciting one. Since there's no music score, silence is effectively used in some scenes. So on that note, Jack Pot is worth a look. P.S. Among the players is future Ward Cleaver from the TV show "Leave It To Beaver", Hugh Beaumont. He plays a mechanic.
