It's been two weeks of unrelenting New York City summer heat. Sooner or later the boys are apt to get into mischief, so Knuckles takes the load of 'em to Algy's father's camp in the mountains. The trip gets sidetracked when they cross paths with Judge Parker' party on the road. The Judge, hiding from the mob, is desperately heading to his mountain manor when he runs the boys' vehicle off the road, nearly disabling it right before his own car conks out. With only the boys' car barely able to travel, they all wind up at the judge's manor where ghostly sightings, spooky organ music, death threats and a creepy housekeeper await them. Judge Parker is the very judge who once nearly put Knuckles on death row for murder. When the judge turns up dead, Knuckles is in trouble again, with little brother Danny and the gang ready to help him out. Written by
The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

When the judge realizes the mob is trying to kill him, he decides to flee to his country home. When his bodyguard is told this, the bodyguard tries to call his mother to tell her he will be out of town. The judge stops the bodyguard by telling him the phones may be tapped and the mob will then know where the judge is. Later, when they arrive at his country home, the judge is upset that there are no lights on and that his housekeeper doesn't answer the door. He tells the others, "Where could she be? I called and told her we were coming." See more »

Is it haunted, Miss Louise?
I don't think so, but it needs a good ghost to give it a little life.

I have always thought that film was like Alfred Hitchcock's "Rebecca" in a number of ways. A crazed housekeeper who is obsessed with her dead Mistress. A scene where the housekeeper sneaks up behind the heroine, utters some creepy lines and when the heroine turns to confront her, the housekeeper has completely vanished. All the talk about the dead Lenore like the talk about the dead Rebecca in Hitchcock's film. By the way, the East Side Kids are the stars of this film. Sort of like a warm-up drill for their " Spooks Run Wild"(with Bela Lugosi released the following year). The kids are in great form here as usual. Leo Gorcey is great, as always, as the wisecracking Mugs. Bobby Jordan as Danny has the films best malapropism "Don't jump to confusions"! Dave O'Brien (who was in more than several of the East Side Kids films) is good as the quick fisted Knuckles Dolan and Inez Guest is lovely as the terrified young heiress. It goes by quickly when your watching it. It only runs about a hour. I liked it. It was cool in a low-budget sort of way. It is currently available on D.V.D from Alpha Video at .oldies.com for a really great price. Check it out!
