Just as tough and sarcastic the Dead End Kids minus Leo Gorcey are taken out of the big city and are now wild boys of the road, itinerant young people who are hobos. Now in sunny Southern California like so many migrant souls in the day they get farm work with widow Rosina Galli and her foreman Henry Armetta.

Billy Halop who had the moniker Thomas Abraham Lincoln put on him at the orphanage he was raised since he was a foundling starts to work a con whereby he pretends he's the long lost son of Galli. For the rest of the film we are on edge as to whether he will rip her off as he originally intended or actually help her fend off some of the bigger farmers angry at her because she pays better wages than they do.

Now as the Code was firmly in place I don't think you doubt what Halop and the rest of them do. You're Not So Tough is a film set firmly in the social conscience driven Thirties. It's a museum piece but an entertaining one.
