Jinx Money (1948) **1/2
16 May 2010 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Typical Bowery Boys feature starts off with Slip and Sach financially desperate but happily stumbling upon $50,000 cash wrapped up in a newspaper lying in the street. It turns out to be the gambling winnings from a poker player who was mysteriously rubbed out right after leaving the game with his loot. Naturally things get dicey when the boys are continually stalked by some shady characters (fronted by Sheldon Leonard again) who'd each like to get their hands on the money, and also by that unidentified murderer armed with a deadly umbrella as his weapon of choice. Not a bad offering, but nothing extraordinary. **1/2 out of ****
