As the title News Hounds would indicate this Bowery Boys feature is about the fourth estate as Leo Gorcey gets a job as a junior reporter. Junior that is to regular reporter Bill Kennedy who is on the trail of a story about the mob muscling in on boxing. A story that's as old as time, but still occurs with depressing regularity.
But Gorcey might just have the goods on the mob this time as a respectable citizen played by John Hamilton is caught with a picture with mobster Anthony Caruso. Huntz Hall does the picture snapping, but in the usual manner of Bowery Boy efficiency he loses the camera. The picture becomes the object of everyone's search including the law.
News Hounds is a good feature from the Bowery Boys series. One thing I can't understand is given Leo Gorcey's command of the English language who would hire him at any job where writing skills are required?
Or am I being petty?
