News Hounds (1947) ***
22 April 2010 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Good entry in the Bowery Boys series has a more busy plot line than usual, but that actually works in its favor. Some fun chuckles abound when frustrated copy boy Slip (Leo Gorcey) tries to get a big newspaper story happening around a group of criminals involved in a fixed boxing match (one of them is John Hamilton who'd later wind up as Perry White on TV's SUPERMAN). We get to see Gorcey once again doing his "smooth-talking tough guy in a suit" act as he impersonates another crime boss, and it's hilarious when he mangles the English language in the process (like talking about dealing with the weather's "heat and humility", which he says with a straight deadpan face). And Leo's mixed-up words in general are well-misconstrued this time around. Bernard Gorcey's Louie the sweet shop owner is getting funnier at this point, and Huntz Hall as Sach starts trying really hard to get some laughs (with mixed results for this viewer). Three Stooges regular Christine McIntyre plays the pretty blonde publisher of the newspaper, and Nita Bieber is drop-dead easy on the eyes as Gabriel Dell's latest girlfriend. Speaking of Gabe, it's still difficult to know what to make out of his "friend/foe" appearances in this series. He always struck me as an actor that wanted to try and stand out from the rest of the boys, but usually comes off as an unwelcome liability in these films. *** out of ****
