  • Just Plain Old FUN TO WATCH, that's all.....

    Growing up in the 70s, and watching an endless line of Bowery Boys flicks every single weekend for years (on Channel 5 WNEW New York, no less)... you absolutely grew to become a devotee of these goofy movies. Looking back now, and as an adult, the Bowery Boys were ahead of their time, largely thanks to the comic genius of Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall. Edward Bernds, who directed a bunch of the series entries in the 1950s, also credited for The Three Stooges shorts, said Leo Gorcey told him point blank to let him do his stuff and bud out, same with Huntz Hall. "You direct the rest of the cast..... not us." Needless to say, they didn't get along too well.... however, years later, Bernds said with a sigh...Gorcey was right. In his retirement, he would catch some of these movies on TV and confessed, had he got into the mechanics of the script, it would have all fell flat. Case in point, ANGELS ALLEY, an old favorite, featuring the great Frankie Darro who gets caught up in a hot car ring, and the Bowery Boys to the rescue. And yes, that's Mary Gordon, Sherlock Holmes landlady, playing Gorcey's mom! What a cast, and fast paced. William "one shot" Beaudine directed most of the series, a veteran of silent films, beginning with Mary Pickford, nails this one down with the greatest of ease. The car chase finale is just plain nuts, credit Huntz Hall. Who else? Enjoy.

    One of the best in the long running Bowery Boys series. Frankie Darro appeared in four films during the early years of the series and this is his best role. Huntz Hall and Leo Gorcey are always a joy to watch.
