Leo Gorcey gets a Licking and Keeps on Kicking
15 March 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"The East Side Kids" are looking for leader Leo Gorcey (as Ethelbert "Muggs" McGinnis), who is celebrating his 18th birthday (several years too late, obviously). "Clancy Street" pals Huntz Hall (as Glimpy Freedhoff), Bobby Jordan (as Danny), Benny Bartlett (as Benny), Ernest "Sammy" Morrison (as Scruno), Dick Chandlee (as Stash aka Skinny), and Eddie Mills (as Dave aka Eddie) give Mr. Gorcey's hind quarters 18 whacks with a paddle. To make it a gang-banging he won't forget, rival "Cherry Street" kid Billy Benedict (as Butch) forces Gorcey to bend over for 19 more bare-handed and paddle hits (the 19th isn't one to grow on; Mr. Benedict can't count).

After taking some additional hits, from a policeman's stick, Gorcey learns his wealthy Texas uncle, Noah Berry (as Pete Monahan), is coming to visit. Gorcey must produce the five brothers and a sister that he lied about having. He uses his "East Side Kids", of course. Mr. Morrison offered up as "adopted". And, Mr. Hall dons a dress and wig to become "little Annabelle". Then, greedy gangsters discover the ruse. - "Clancy Street Boys" isn't much of a movie; but, Gorcey's spankings and Hall's posing as a woman are amusing. Later, Gorcey married lovely guest-star Lita Ward.
