Are Crooks Dishonest? 1918

 

Are crooks dishonest

A pretty straightforward Lloyd film in which he and Snub are con man buddies and meet their match in com woman Bebe Daniels. As fun as this sounds there isn’t anything terribly distinctive about it. I did like the tandem handstand kick that Harold and Snub do toward the end to escape an attacker.
