Clearing Louie The Lout
24 April 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Bowery Boys go west in this film to clear the good name of their patron Louis Dombrowski owner of Louie's Sweet Shop where the kids hangout mainly because most of the time they have no gainful employment.

Bernard Gorcey who played Louie in the series tells the kids he's got a past life out west when he was prospecting and his partner killed and Louie framed for the murder. The past comes home when rustic western sheriff Russell Simpson comes east after searching twenty years for this varmint.

Of course it's up to Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall and the rest of the gang to clear the elder Gorcey of this blot upon his name and restore the gold mine that Louie and his partner found to his daughter, Julie Gibson.

The Bowery Boys are in their usual fish out of water element where Gorcey fractures the language trying to sound smart and Hall just plays it as dumb as he is. Still fortune does smile upon them as they scrape through for yet another film in the series. This one's pretty funny in spots. Check out their third degree torture of head villain Norman Willis with an angry Brahma Bull.
