The Bowery Boys Take a Lap
30 October 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Jalopy jockey Leo Gorcey (as Terrence Aloysius "Slip" Mahoney) hopes to win some much-needed money, in a derby; but, his so-called "Mahoney Meteor" slowly crashes into last place. When mugging sidekick Huntz Hall (as Horace Debussy "Sach" Jones) accidentally invents a super fuel, "The Bowery Boys" think they have what it takes to win the big race. Of course, rival racer Robert Lowery (as "Skid" Wilson) wants to steal the secret formula. Regulars Bernard Gorcey (as Louie Dumbrowsky), David "Condon" Gorcey (as Chuck), Benny "Bennie" Bartlett (as Butch) have more to do than usual - but, with the film series in a tired, repetitive rut, it doesn't mean much. Busty model Jane Easton (as Bobbie Lane) carries the film's main attractions.

*** Jalopy (2/15/53) William Beaudine ~ Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Bernard Gorcey, Robert Lowery
