Goofs

Early in the movie, when Slip (Leo Gorcey) speaks to both Daisy and Josie, behind them is a store front with the words 'Home Appliance Company'. When Father O'Hanlon arrives, Slip and Sach offer him a ride to the St. Vincent Boys Club, and when they arrive and get out of the car after a few blocks, behind them again is the 'Home Appliance Company' store.

Gorcey Gets An Understudy
1 May 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

As if the world did not have enough troubles, the English language was sent back a few generations as Leo Gorcey acquired an understudy in diction and grammar in Angels' Alley. Other than that, this film takes a more serious tone than most of the Bowery Boys features.

Young Thomas Menzies has adopted Gorcey as a hero and has taken to wearing the creased old fedora like him and using the big words without quite knowing the meaning. It's the best thing about Angels' Alley.

Another actor who played troubled city kids, Frankie Darro, plays Leo Gorcey's cousin just released from prison. Immediately he gets tied up with the local gangster Nestor Paiva. It's up to the Bowery Boys to get the whole situation straightened.

This film did miss Bernard Gorcey as Louie Dombrowski, proprietor of Louie's sweetshop and hangout for Leo, Huntz Hall and the rest. Nice film, but not in the usual Bowery Boys spirit.
