Goofs

Stay attentive during that scene below decks when Slip and the gang attempt to search the sleeping Marines for the 'Marie' tattoo. Speaking to Butch (Buddy Gorman) and Chuck (David Gorcey), Slip (Leo Gorcey) calls his real life brother 'Dave' instead of using his character's name in the story. See more »

It's great to see the New York skyline again. It'll look a lot better if all those buildings weren't in the way!
11 September 2010 | by (brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** After being mugged of $1,683.00 that they collected in a charity dance for the needy families of the Bowery by two sailors, Red & Jones, on shore leave Slip and his "Bowery Boys" Sach Whitey Chuck & Butch end up enlisting in the US Navy, by mistake, in them trying to track down the sailors who mugged them. With one of the sailors having a tattoo of a heart with an arrow and the name Marie on it the boys expect to check out the chests of every sailor in the US Navy to find the culprit! With thousands of sailors having the exact same tattoo that's quite an undertaking. Even worse the two "sailors" who mugged Slip & Sach of the $1,683.00 weren't even sailor but were impersonating them! Making the search for them in the US Navy a not just a very difficult but virtually impossible task!

It's after Slip Sach & the "Bowery Boys" inflict almost as much damage on the US Navy, with their screwball antics, as the Japanese did at Pearl Harbor that they finally hit pay-dirt in the most unusual and unexpected way. It's when their battleship that their assigned to ends up in the port of New York with the boys loaded with cash, due to Sach's pet parrot Davie Jones sharp eye in a shell game aboard ship, and their given shore leave is when they run into the very same phony sailors, Red & Joe, who had earlier mugged them! With Red & Joe staying at hotel over Louie Dumbrowsky's Sweet Shop that they got the news, in a letter from Sach to Louie, of the boys good luck at the shell game table. Now both Red & Joe are, in planing to mug them again, ready for an encore event! But this time around with the "Bowery Boys" are more then ready for them things turned out a whole lot different!

One of the few "Bowery Boys" misfires that was only saved by a number of comedy set pieces involving the Boys superior officer on board Chief Petty officer Longnecker who's always getting himself wet, at sea and on dry land, with him ending up knocked cold, by Sach, on a Bowery street as a NYC sanitation street cleaner washes him down. There's also the ship's Lt.Commander Tanner who has an amazing ability of blowing bubbles after mistakingly gulping down a soap sandwich, which he mistook for cheese, and washing it all down with a cup of tea.

***SPOILERS*** For all their trouble in finally tracking down their muggers and getting their $1,683.00 back the Boys in expecting to get a commendations from the US Navy for their great work ended up again, also by mistake, re-enlisting in the US Navy with those who's enlistment papers got mixed up with their navy commendations awards!
