Terrence 'Slip' Mahoney:
Ladies and gentlemen, gather around. Might be worth the price of admission. I am beginning to feel a surge of philanthropics welling up inside of me. Since I have been more fortunate than most unfortunates, I am in a position to enumerate some denominations. And I'm going to start off with the Bowery Milk Fund. To them, I'm going to give the derogatory sum of, eh, five thousand dollars!

With a cast of among others John Eldredge, Sheldon Leonard, and Ben Welden all of whom have played various criminal types this Bowery Boys flick has almost the look of an A picture. Then when we get to Louie's Sweet Shop and Leo Gorcey's mangling of the English language we know where we are.
These three and others were involved in a high stakes poker game where the winning pot was $50,000.00. The winner is found stabbed to death, but the money is found by none other than Horace DeBussy Jones. Sach of course being the simple trusting soul that he is shares it with the gang and of course Gorcey takes charge.
Right after that the various participants in that poker game keep turning up dead and there's always a couple of Bowery Boys in the vicinity. Between Gorcey's diction and grammar and Huntz Hall's saying he's seeing a mysterious man with an umbrella at the scene of each incident, slow burning Chief Inspector Donald MacBride is about to lose his police pension.
Actually Sach is quite observant and does one very smart thing that leads to the apprehension of the killer.
Fans of these eternal youths should enjoy this one.
