Burglars (German: Einbrecher) is a 1930 German musical comedy film directed by Hanns Schwarz and starring Ralph Arthur Roberts, Lilian Harvey, Willy Fritsch, and Heinz Rühmann. It is also known in English by the alternative title Murder For Sale. It is based on the French play "Guignol le cambrioleur" by Louis Verneuil, who co-wrote the screenplay. A French-language version, titled Caught in the Act, was filmed at the same time. The film was intended by the studio UFA as a follow-up to the hit musical The Three from the Filling Station.
A young wife married to a much older toymaker is seduced by a dashing young thief who plans to rob them.
