"Both leads are masterfully underplayed, and the script's an utter delight throughout."
A veteran safecracker reluctantly takes on a novice thief when the two break into the same house simultaneously. The older man understands the need to keep a low profile in regard to his "earnings" but the careless newcomer spends lavishly, pays the consequences and begins to learn a few lessons about life.
