| No great pretensions
Four of the original Dead End Kids play the sons of former gang members of Barton MacLane's mob. MacLane went up for income tax evasion, the bane of organized crime. His gang including the fathers of these kids were wiped out by a rival gang headed by the as yet unapprehended Edward Pawley.

MacLane's now out and his wife and daughter have a nice ranch they're living on when juvenile reformatory warden Eily Mahlon persuades MacLane to take on Billy Halop, Bernard Punsley, Huntz Hall, and Gabriel Dell and young Bobs Watson who's attached himself to the older boys as wards. Wife Gladys George and daughter Evelyn Ankers warm to the idea, but the kids aren't having any if MacLane doesn't plan to return to his criminal ways.

In the meantime Pawley still wants to settle with MacLane so things you know will get lively.

Hit The Road is young basic B picture programmer to go with some bigger budget Universal feature, possibly a Deanna Durbin or an Abbott&Costello feature. There's either some sloppy editing or the version I saw was butchered for television. I do remember seeing this some 40 years ago on television. It's an easy to take film without any great pretensions.
