Bernard Gorcey (as Louie Dumbrowsky)'s "Ice Cream Parlor" gets held-up, as leader Leo Gorcey (as Slip Mahoney) and "The Bowery Boys" come in for banana splits. Amusingly, Huntz Hall (as Horace Debussy "Sach" Jones) defends the older Gorcey, and gets hit on his head with the robber's pistol. Strangely, the gun doesn't hurt Mr. Hall. After a trip to the doctor, the "scientific seduction" is that Hall's "square head" has developed super-human thickness, due to calcium deposits. This diagnosis doesn't make much sense, considering later events, but, anyway
Mr. Gorcey's "Slip" sees a $1,000 wrestling contest as easy money, due to Hall's impervious hard-head. So, Hall is recruited into the ring. But, Hall's power has an unpredictable limitation - it travels to other body parts, without notice. Having little to say or do, David "Condon" Gorcey (as Chuck) and Benny "Bennie" Bartlett (as Butch) appear only to make "The Bowery Boys" still seem like a group. At a party, Hall tells Sandra Gould, "You better take that harmonica out of your mouth." By then, you may have forgotten what "No Holds Barred" is about.
*** No Holds Barred (11/23/52) William Beaudine ~ Huntz Hall, Leo Gorcey, Bernard Gorcey
