Storyline

Slip and Sach to go the local Air Force base to find out why their friend, an Air Force enlisted man, is in the stockade and charged with treason. Mistaking a recruiting office for a visitors office, they inadvertently enlist in the Air Force. They soon learn that not only is their friend not a traitor, but he is being used as bait to expose a spy ring. The boys decide to do a little exposing of their own, and wind up almost gumming up the works. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Clipped Wings (1953) **
4 August 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

"A Writ of Habeus Corpuscle".

Edward Bernds, who worked on some of the Three Stooges shorts, had a hand in writing this one and directing so it's more slick than some others in the series. This is only one of a few Bowery Boys entries in which Bernds took part, and those films are usually all the better for it.

The Boys were pure slapstick comedians by this time, but provide only occasional chuckles as Slip and Sach unwittingly enlist in the Air Force while trying to help out a pilot friend in trouble.

So-So Bowery Boys.
