While working at the "New York Daily Chronicle", "The Bowery Boys" get involved in exposing a gambling ring. Journalistic leader Leo Gorcey (as Slip Mahoney) is the newspaper's copy boy - and aspiring investigative reporter. Hapless Huntz Hall (as Sach Jones) wants to be a photographer. Bobby Jordan (as Bobby), William "Billy" Benedict (as Whitey), and David Gorcey (as Chuck) help deliver the papers. Former chum turned mob flunky Gabriel Dell (as Gabe) provides the lads with libelous leads. And, fatherly Bernard Gorcey (as Louie) runs their "Sweet Shop" headquarters.

The Bowery regulars follow an intermittently clever screenplay, by Tim Ryan and Edmond Seward, which makes this one of the more enjoyable movies of the series. The Ryan/Seward writing team would reach a peak with their follow-up "Bowery Buckaroos" (October 1947). And, Ryan, a notable character actor, essays one of his bigger Bowery roles, as "Chronicle" editor John "Bullfrog" Burke. The bad guys, led by Anthony Caruso (as "Dapper" Dan Greco) - "Greco, it's quite an accomplishment to be the village idiot in a town the size of New York" - and Ralph Dunn (as "Dutch" Miller) lead a perfect supporting cast.
