The Old Double Whammy
3 April 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Years ago Major League outfielder Jackie Jensen tried hypnotism to cure his fear of flying. I guarantee it did not work as well as the hypnotism that Leo Gorcey learns from Ian Keith to work on Huntz Hall to make him a fearless boxing champion.

The Bowery Boys are back and in Mr. Hex they try to make some money to help Gale Robbins's singing career by hypnotizing Hall to become fearless in the ring. But as with every good gimmick there's always someone to take advantage of it. In this case it's racketeer Ben Welden and he's got several tricks of his own to put the old Double Whammy on the plans of the Bowery Boys.

In fact what makes this particular Bowery Boys film memorable is the presence of Sammy Cohen as Evil Eye Fagin who flashes those pop eyes in any direction and the weak crumble. See how the Bowery Boys deal with him.

Mr. Hex is not too bad an entry in the Bowery Boys series. You'll love the final climax in the ring where Welden puts in a professional ringer and sends Evil Eye Fagin to weave his magic. Lots of laughs here.
