| One of the Best In This Series
MGM's "Crime Does Not Pay" shorts are all good. Some are superb. This is one of the very best.

It's directed by Joseph H. Newman, who went on to become one of the most prolific and consistent directors of film noir. Unlike most of the entries, it has a star: Marsha Hunt.

She was a fine actress. Here she is excellent.

She is pregnant and we see her looking in the newspaper for a place for unwed mothers. We see a classified ad being circled. Without giving too much away, the doctors are shady. And the other patients are touching.

Maybe it's just me but I had the sense that one of the girls might have been a victim of incest. The whole thing is very racy for 1940. And it's not at all dated.
