'A Case Of Mistaken Indemnity'
27 November 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Paris Playboys finds Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall off to Gay Paree for the life of a pair on bon vivants. I doubt either could spell that and Gorcey was sure to misinterpret the words.

It's all a case of 'mistaken indemnity' as a quartet of continental gentlemen enter Louie's Sweet Shop on the Bowery and are sure that Hall is a famous French rocket scientist who disappeared as he was working on a new fuel formula. As the scientist was known for being quite the ladies man as well as a brilliant researcher, it ain't rocket science to figure out Horace DeBussy Jones isn't him even if he does look alike.

Still in a scheme to aid the free world, Hall, Gorcey, and Bernard Gorcey head to Paris in the hope that the ringer Hall might lure out those who are trying to disrupt his work one way or another.

Despite Leo Gorcey's usual command of the English language this Bowery Boy film belongs to Huntz Hall in his dual role as the simple minded Satch and the playboy scientist. For Huntz Hall's fans.
