The crooked manager of a taxicab company is out to drive the independent owners/drivers out of business through various tactics such as sabotage, beatings and intimidation. But he crosses paths with "Slip" Mahoney, who is driving an independent cab as a favor, and the rest of the 'Bowery Boys," and this does not bode well for the crook and his henchmen. Written by

"It's about time we took some drastic measurements."
The second in Monogram's Bowery Boys series starring the always funny Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall. Well, always funny to me, anyway. Gorcey's malapropisms and Hall's buffoonery might not be high comedy to some but I get a kick out of them. The plot to this one has Gorcey's Slip Mahoney becoming a taxicab driver, which leads to he and his friends becoming involved in a feud with a rival cab company. In addition to Gorcey and Hall, the Boys includes Bobby Jordan as Bobby, William Benedict as Whitey, and Leo's brother David Gorcey as Chuck. This was David's first Bowery Boys film. In keeping with the theme of nepotism, Leo's father Bernard makes his first appearance as series regular Louie, the ice cream parlor owner. Douglas Fowley makes for a hissable villain. Jane Randolph, Judy Clark, and Marjorie Woodworth provide the pretty. It's a decent entry with some good lines and gags. The phone booth bit is a highlight. Far from the Boys' best but fun.
