Trivia

When Slip is punching the smuggler in the stomach, punches don`t match the sound effects. Obviously the sound is the rhythmic blows on a punching bag and Slip is punching more erratically. See more »

Terrence Mahoney--wrong one

"Smuggler's Cove" is a pretty standard Bowery Boys film, though with less antisocial behavior than usual! The film begins with Slap and Sach working at a building doing janitorial work. As usual, Slap doesn't do much of the work and is mostly there to 'supervise'. Soon a messenger brings a note for Terrence Mahoney (Sach's real given name) and he assumes it's for him...though they also happen to be in the office for a difference Terrence Mahoney...the REAL recipient of the letter. Sach reads it and it says he's the heir to a mansion...and even though all his relatives are apparently poor slobs and he's never heard of this family member, he automatically assumes it's meant to be. After all, Sach is, as usual, a bit of an idiot.

Unfortunately, when Sach and the gang arrive at the place, they don't realize that a gang of smugglers are using the place. What's worse, the OTHER Terrence Mahoney soon shows up and the usual hilarity (?) occurs. Oddly, however, the ending comes awfully easily and abruptly between the two Terrences. Overall, it's the usual undemanding time-passer you'd expect. Nothing brilliant but considering it's from Monogram pictures, this isn't a bad thing.
