A pair of minor con artists (Bryar and Clements) grab a car that belongs to Hagerthy, an ex-con trying hard to make it as a salesman. The pair rob a bank and put the swag in the car's spare tire. Before they can retrieve the money, a collection agency repossesses the car. It's then

bought by Beddoe, a parish priest who drives off on a fishing trip. But a sharp-eyed cop stops him en route and, not realizing the man garbed in fisherman's clothes is really a priest, arrests him for bank robbery. Beddoe's let go the next day, and Hagerthy is arrested for the crime. The cops

complain that Beddoe is using his church to harbor a criminal, so the priest is transferred to another parish by his monsignor. This upsets the parishoners and fills Bryar and Clements with guilt. They finally confess to the crime, and Beddoe is returned to his old parish. Hagerthy benefits as

well, for this new-found fame helps him in his sales career. This is a sweet, minor comedy with humanistic values. The players are good, making the slightly far-out plot line believable. The direction isn't bad, though it could be tighter.
