Sach is informed that he is the heir to the fortune of a high society mogul. When he arrives for the reading of the will, he discovers that the real heir is a young boy, and that Sach's birth certificate had been forged by family members who don't want the youngster to inherit all the money. Sach and the gang determine to expose the relatives' scheme and see that the boy gets what is rightfully his. Written by
"Bowery Garage" General Manager, General Superintendent, and General Treasurer in overalls Leo Gorcey (as Terence Aloysius "Slip" Mahoney) finds his absent-minded mechanic Huntz Hall (as Horace Debussy "Sach" Jones) sleeping on the job. Waking the hapless helper only causes a car wreck. But, the vehicle's owner thinks Mr. Hall might pass for "Terwilliger Debussy 'Twig' Jones", the long-lost son and heir to a family fortune. Hall accompanies Mr. Gorcey and fatherly Bernard Gorcey (as Louie Dumbrowsky) to the Jones' Larchmont, New York estate...
David "Condon" Gorcey (as Chuck) and Benny "Bennie" Bartlett (as Butch) appear in the opening and closing scenes.
Perceiving Hall as an easy to control idiot, money-grubbing adults want Hall to claim his fortune from its rightful heir, young Ronald Keith (as Terwilliger Debussy "Twig" Jones III). Young Keith isn't going down without a fight, however. Hall and Gorcey in "High Society" leads to laughs, of course, with the latter's expectation they might meet a couple of "debu-tramps" and settle into the upper-crust treading a funny line. "The Bowery Boys" movie series had been sputtering in earlier years, but some of these final Gorcey-Hall team-ups are relatively smooth and successful, considering.
***** High Society (4/17/55) William Beaudine ~ Huntz Hall, Leo Gorcey, Ronald Keith, Bernard Gorcey
