The fabled lamp of Aladdin with a pixie like genie has turned up in of all places, the Bowery, New York City. And who acquires the lamp? Here's a hint, it wasn't Mayor Wagner.
Bowery To Bagdad finds Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall with joint ownership of the lamp and they seal the partnership so much so that genie Eric Blore can't do anything unless they both agree. Huntz Hall being the simple soul he is wants five malteds, but Gorcey has higher ambitions, but just can't get it done.
Not that the Bowery Boys are the only ones who want the lamp. A gangster with molls Joan Shawlee and Jean Willes played by Robert Bice has gotten wind of it. And a couple of Arab looking characters are in the hunt as well. Blore kind of likes the boys, but they've tangled things up pretty good.
Bowery To Bagdad doesn't have quite the ring of Kaiser Wilhelm's fabled project of the Berlin to Bagdad railroad, but I assure you this one is a much funnier journey.
