    JAIL BUSTERS is actually a remake of the Bowery Boys TRIPLE TROUBLE, made five years earlier. In this case, there's a heck of a lot more ad-libs, supplied by Gorcey and Hall, and, of course, kooky situations. If you compare the storylines of the Bowery Boys films of the 1940s to the Boys features of the 1950s, they exchanged some of the dramatic sequences for more comedy input. Translation: Huntz Hall had a field day. William "one shot" Beaudine, who directed most of the series films, was credited for his choice to just let the camera roll "and see what happens" between Gorcey and Hall. It worked well. Throw in some memorable character actors like quirky Percy Helton as the warden and old Warner Bros. alumnus Barton MacLane as a crooked prison guard. The ending is a hoot with the Boys, now heroes, still locked in jail. Gorcey quips, "Just be patient... now a bearded old man.
