With his gang's clubhouse closed for repairs, Bobby Jordan (as Danny Dolan) moves "The East Side Kids" back to a (horse) stable hangout. There, young Mr. Jordan, hard-boiled Leo Gorcey (as Muggs Maloney), Ernest "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison (as Scruno), David Gorcey (as Peewee), and Donald Haines (as Skinny) meet ageing horseman Clarence Muse (as Ben). Jordan and Mr. Muse help Mr. Gorcey realize his dream - to become a professional jockey. For "That Gang of Mine", Jordan is incredibly appealing, Gorcey is a natural jockey wannabe, and Muse contributes an engaging "guest" performance. Director Joseph H. Lewis makes the most of ordinary production values.
