Wallace Beery and Raymond Hatton team up again in this silent comedy, in which they (respectively) play Mike Doolan, a half-bright gumshoe, and Scoop McGee, his equally dim-witted journalist pal. While on the trail of a group of gangsters, Doolan and McGee unwittingly fall in with a group of gangsters, and wind up bringing them to justice in spite of themselves. Partners In Crime was one of a dozen silent comedies Beery and Hatton would appear in together; their partnership would end with the coming of sound.
