The Bowery Boys--Slip, Sach, Bobby, Whitey & Chuck--start their own exterminating service, and get a job which takes them to a spooky old abandoned mansion in the middle of the night. Meeting up with pal Gabe and his new French bride, the boys are tormented by mad scientists who try to convince them the place is haunted and then kidnap Sach in order to place his brain inside a gorilla. —Marty McKee <firstname.lastname@example.org>
bowery boys at it again.
Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall are the ringleaders this chapter of the Bowery Boys. lots of puns, turns of phrase. They get hired to investigate strange goings on in an old mansion. some fun co-stars... character actor Chester Clute is in here as the real estate agent. Douglass Dumbrille had a dark side to his characters; usually played the bad guy. and Gabriel Dell appears now and then in the Bowery Boys films. Gorcey's brother David and father Bernard are also in here. the usual recipe of slapstick humor and word play get us to the end of the film. fun signs in the real estate office, where all the places for sale are crossed out, highlighting the shortage of houses after WW II. its pretty okay. aint nothing new here. but entertaining enough. Directed by William Beaudine; had directed a bunch of the Bower Boys films.
