Modestly entertaining.

When "The Officer and the Lady" begins, a cheap pickpocket (Allen Jenkins) tries to rob Andre (Charles Boyer). But upon recognizing him as an old friend, 'Fingers' returns his wallet and they talk about old times...and it turns out Andre has been a bit of a rogue himself. The two go off on some adventures and Andre seems to have little desire to steal...much to Fingers' chagrin. What also confuses Fingers is when Andre romances Sidonie--and Andre is upset when Fingers steals her purse. But, when they look in the purse later, Andre finds a sad letter...and for some very inexplicable reason, he decides to help the little boy in the letter! How? And how does some officer have to do with this? See the film.

This is a very hard to believe but still enjoyable installment of the "Four Star Playhouse" TV show. And, if you want to see more of these for free, go to archive.org and download them to your heart's content.
