I grew up watching the "Bowery Boys" on TV. Their movies were always fun and you could enjoy them without having to deal with a message. Everything always worked out in the end. Yes, the plots were corny, but they were always enjoyable. I recently bought 10 CDs of their films as "East Side Kids" for $19.95 and considered it money well spent.
However, I wish I had missed this particular film. I know of racial prejudice as I was born in the late 40's. I understand the social attitudes of the times, even if I don't approve of them. But this film, which is suppose to be lighthearted, has so much racial stereotyping that at times it is hard to watch. I could give specific examples, but why bother.
