Trivia

Sometimes the censors are asleep at the switch. Near the end of the movie during a scene with a lot of hubbub, Gabe says to Satch, the monster, "Hey, don't you remember me? I'm your pal. We used to write our names in the snow." This a reference to a feat practiced by boys in snowy climes. See more »

Sach Sharpens His Mind
2 July 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Reading "Famous Predictions of Nostradamus" and eating too much candy helps give gluttonous Huntz Hall (as Sach) the power to see into the future, after "The Bowery Boys" entrepreneurial leader Leo Gorcey (as Slip Mahoney) hits him on the head. Since it only happens when the cavity-stricken Mr. Hall has a toothache, Mr. Gorcey keeps his pal filled with candy. Gorcey, with help from cohorts Gabriel Dell (as Gabe), William "Billy" Benedict (as Whitey), Benny "Bennie" Bartlett (as Butch), and David Gorcey (as Chuck) hawks Hall as "Ali Ben Sachmo" aka "The Bowery Prophet." Unfortunately, Hall's ability to predict startling events of the future attracts the attention of mad doctor Alan Napier (as Druzik), who wants to transport Hall's superior brain into his hairy creation, Glenn Strange (as Atlas the Monster). Hall and Mr. Strange are this rushed-looking entry's greatest strengths.
