| fun little short
It's an MGM Presents A Crime Does Not Pay Subject. Charles Vurn is always looking for easy money and he's feeling lucky. He's falling behind at his job and with the rent. He demands $500 but his wife Martha refuses to give him the money. He digs through her drawers and finds the money. In the process, he pushes her into the radiator and kills her. His landlord comes to give him a large commission check. It's too late for his wife but for him, he has one more scheme. He starts getting lucky until he doesn't. It's short and sweetly bitter. It's fun to have the poetry of comeuppance. It's a great little short. It's fun to see a bad person get their due.
