Storyline

Word comes to the Bowery that titled, great, great grand-uncle of Horace Debussy Jones, better known as Sach, is near death and has provided transportation to summon relatives from around the world. Sach and the Bowery Boys, Slip Mahoney, Butch Williams, Chuck Anderson and Soda Shoppe owner Louie Dumbrowsky, trade Sach's pre-paid first class ticket for lesser (much lesser) accommodations and embark for ye olde London towne. There, they find the old man, the Earl of Walsingham already surrounded by sinister Sir Edgar Whipsnade; Reggie, the obligatory Fop; the spinster Aunt Agatha; the young and seductive Lady Marcia; moronic Cousin Herbert, and Hoskins, the Butler. They, of course,are assembled in a plot to slowly poison the old Earl and to get rid of Sach and his pals. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

"You know in America, we serve cocktails. In England, they serve tea and trumpets."
1 October 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The Bowery Boys wreak havoc in England in this so-so entry in the series (the thirtieth!). The flimsy plot has Sach finding out he's related to an earl, so he and the fellas head to London. The plots to these things always seem to revolve around Sach. Anyway, it's basically like the one where they hung out with hillbillies except the gags are changed to fit the new locale. Still another "fish out of water" story. Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall are both in fine form doing what they do. Bennie Bartlett and David Gorcey prop up scenery (as usual). Bernard Gorcey is fun as Louie the Sweet Shop owner, an unofficial Bowery Boy himself and the scene stealer in many of these films. It's really not a great movie but it is fun in spots. Not one of my favorites.
