Jump For Glory (1937)

(aka: When Thief Meets Thief)



Reviews and Comments

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. followed in the large footsteps of his father, playing the dashing, athletic leads in romantic adventures and caper films like Jump For Glory, also known as When Thief Meets Thief. This film is short and sweet, about a thief who falls in love and decides to reform. One problem: a rival thief is out there somewhere, and there is a score to settle, should they ever meet again. The film is a minor effort, but it has an endearing gentleness to it that is quite pleasant.
