Slip mistakenly believes that he has inherited an old Long Island estate, and he and the gang go to see what their new "home" looks like. Unbeknownst to them, the real owners of the estate have hired a caretaker to run it in their absence, and the caretaker is running a smuggling operation. He determines to get rid of the boys before they can expose his activities. Written by
While cleaning offices in the "Metropolis Building", loquacious Leo Gorcey (as Terrance "Slip" Mahoney) receives a letter stating "Terrance Mahoney, Esq." is the heir to an estate in Long Island. Believing he has struck it rich, Mr. Gorcey brings pals Huntz Hall (as Sach), William "Billy" Benedict (as Whitey), David Gorcey (as Chuck), and Benny "Bennie" Bartlett (as Butch) to inspect the mansion. As you might expect, "The Bowery Boys" discover "Mahoney Manor" is inhibited by spooks and diamond smugglers. Describing himself s a "friend of the family," private investigator Gabriel Dell (as Gabe Moreno) arrives to help. This is yet another stab in the "old dark house" plot, with the most notable feature being the return of pretty Amelita Ward (as Teresa Mahoney), who would soon marry Gorcey.
*** Smugglers' Cove (10/10/48) William Beaudine ~ Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Gabriel Dell, Amelita Ward
