Chuck, a reporter for The Blade newspaper, gets beaten up while trying to get a story on prison corruption, and the rest of the Bowery Boys, Slip, Sach, and Butch, get themselves arrested so that they can complete the expose from inside the prison, while serving a short---they think---six month sentence. Inside the Big House, they learn that ex-gangsters Ed Lannigan, Tom Tomcyk, and "Big Greenie", are living in the lap of luxury within the prison, by paying off Jenkins, the corrupt Captain of the Guards. And, on the side, the Boys, Sach in particular, slowly send Dr. Fordyce, the prison psychiatrist, off the deep end as they clumsily go about their investigation. Written by

At last, David "Condon" Gorcey (as Charles "Chuck" Anderson) has a job!
he's working undercover, for the "New York Blade", to expose prison
corruption. But, just when you thought "Chuck" might take center stage, he's beaten up by gangsters, and sent to a hospital "full of sick people." Learning about his noble task, fellow "Bowery Boys" Leo Gorcey (as "Slip" Mahoney), Huntz Hall (as "Sach" Jones), and Benny Bartlett (as "Butch" Williams) get themselves arrested, to continue the investigation from within prison walls. Or, so they think! - "Jail Busters" features the usual idiocy, with an immensely satisfying supporting cast. Mouth-popping psychiatrist Fritz Feld (as Fernando F. Fordyce) steals the show, as he loses his mind.
