| Fighting Fools (1949) ***
"May the best gladiator submerge victorious!"

A solid Bowery Boys entry, directed by Reginald LeBorg. The gang try to stop a crooked fight-fixing racket with the aid of a boxer whose brother met with tragedy in the ring. Many of these comedies utilized drama to help them along, especially back when the boys were called The Eastside Kids. This one's an interesting blend of comedy and drama with some funny dialogue and some unconventionally serious acting (for this period) from Huntz Hall and Leo Gorcey.

Recommended for BB newbies.
