Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Dorothy Patrick, the sweetheart of Republic Pictures' "B" unit, stars in Lonely Hearts Bandits. Patrick plays Louise Curtis, a petty crook who teams with mobster Tony Morelli (John Eldredge) to fleece the lonely. Victim number one is a lovelorn farmer, who is summarily robbed and murdered by Morelli. The second victim is a small-town widow Nancy Crane (Ann Doran). Passing themselves off as brother and sister, Louise and Tony intend to fleece Nancy for every penny she's got and to bump her off if she gets in the way. This time, however, Nancy's erstwhile fiancé Aaron Hart (Richard Travis) suspects that something is amiss. Hopefully, Hart's realization hasn't come too late.
