Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Confessions of a Top Crime Buster is a feature film in name only. In truth, it consists of three half-hour episodes of the 1971 TV sitcom The Partners. Don Adams plays bumbling police detective Lennie Crooke, while Rupert Crosse portrays Lennie's equally clumsy partner George Robinson (Lennie and George, get it?) John Doucette co-stars as Crooke and Robinson's long-suffering superior Captain Andrews, while Dick Van Patten is on hand a sycophantic Sgt. Higgenbottom. The virtually nonexistent plotline is secondary to the Get Smart style one-liners and slapstick. Confessions of a Top Crime Buster made the syndication rounds after The Partners ran its single-season course in the fall of 1972.
