Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Couples and Robbers settles its various plot convolutions in a fast 29 minutes. The main characters are a wealthy husband and wife, and their poorer counterparts. When crime rears its ugly head, everyone's true nature comes to surface. Despite the seemingly pat and predictable storyline, the audience is in for a few surprises. Couples and Robbers is as good an argument as any for restoring the short subject to the regular theatre program.
