Smuggler's Cove
24 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

Definitely one of my favorite Bowery Boys films ("Master Minds", "Triple Trouble", "Trouble Makers", "The Bowery Boys Meet The Monsters" and "Spook Chasers" are some of the others). This one has just the right amount of mystery, comedy and intrigue as the boys come to a strange cliff top manor which Slip thinks that he has inherited. Unbenknownst to him and the other boys is the fact that the house is being used by dangerous smugglers who try to get the boys out. Things get more complicated when the rightful heir and his daughter show up for the evening. This film is a delight to see and has the usual comic gags to keep the audience entertained right up until its finish. I know that it was based upon a Collier's magazine story from the 1940's, but I can't help finding myself being reminded of the Hardy Boys book "The House On The Cliff" which seems to have been written in the 1950's. There are some strong similarities between the two. I wonder if the Hardy Boys author was inspired by this film?
