Our favorite gang of street yutes is back in this fifth Bowery Boys film. In this one, Sach (Huntz Hall) is turned into an unbeatable prizefighter by a hypnotist. The boys try to use Sach's newfound talent to win some contest money for a friend. Leo Gorcey, Bobby Jordan, William Benedict, and David Gorcey are all fun but this is primarily a vehicle for Huntz Hall, whose silliness always manage to make me laugh. Also appearing in this one is series regular Bernard Gorcey as Louie (who apparently makes a great onion sandwich). Gabriel Dell returns as Gabe, whose membership in the gang is a matter of dispute at this point. He doesn't get involved in any of the funny shenanigans, instead playing the "hero" side character who gets the girl. So he's the Zeppo, basically, and just as interesting. Which is another way of saying he isn't interesting at all. No mention is made of Gabe's French wife from the last movie. In fact, in this one he's hung up on aspiring singer Gloria Robbins. For her part, Robbins is very pretty and sings a couple of forgettable torch songs. An interesting note for fans of the series: in this one, Sach's last name is said to be Sullivan. Later entries would tell us his full name is Horace Debussy 'Sach' Jones. Highlights include the hypnotism scene, those cute newspaper headlines, and Evil Eye Fagin. Fun movie.
