Slip Mahoney: Now Sach I want you to tell Mr. Raymond here just how anxious you are to be hypnotized.
Mr. Raymond, the Hypnotist: I'm afraid I noticed a certain expression of worry in his eyes.

TCM needs a new print
3 April 1999 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Just watched this on Turner Classic Movies this morning. Man do they need to upgrade their copy! The last half of the movie was blurry. It was like watching from behind a fishbowl. As to the movie itself it is a pretty minor Bowery Boys effort nothing special. The last few minutes are the best as things start to get slapsticky in the boxing ring.
