| Good team
Mickey Rooney returned to MGM to team up with Eddie Bracken in this amusing film about two guys just trying to get ahead. A Slight Case Of Larceny has Rooney full of schemes and Bracken his go along pal.

They buy a gas station and demolish a chain competition by merely pilfering the pipeline with an ice cream truck converted to an tanker. Nice way to operate with low overhead. Of course they're in all kinds of trouble before the film ends.

Rooney and Bracken teamed well together, surprised they didn't do more work together. Bracken is married to Marilyn Erskine and they have two kids. Rooney has a Nathan Detroit/Adelaide type engagement with Elaine Stewart.

I love the ending where Charles Halton deflates Rooney's ego. See it and find out how.
