The Bowery Boys star in one of their earlier entries. In this one, the gang taps into the power of hypnotism in order to earn enough dough to help out a damsel in distress. Slip (Leo Gorcey) hypnotizes Sach (Huntz Hall) in order to give him the strength and stamina to win a local boxing tournament that has a prize of $2500. Bad guys hit the scene, of course, and bring in a ringer, as well as a bug-eyed hexer, Mr. Hex, who will sit ringside and jinx Sach with the evil eye. The quality is a bit better, being one of their earlier efforts, and a few laughs are had, especially once Mr. Hex comes on the scene. Of course, Bowery Boys fans will enjoy it more than others.
