Storyline

A shock gives "Sach" Jones the ability to visualize numbers before they come up and he and the other Bowery Boys, "Slip" Mahoney, Chuck and Myron, head for Las Vegas to win some money for their landlady. There, "Sach" wins a fortune at roulette, which convinces crooks Tony Murlock, Sam, and Oggy that he has a system. Using Carol LaRue as bait, they try to get his system and failing, they frame him on a phony-murder charge to blackmail him. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Last film featuring Sach and the Chief
29 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the first and last Bowery Boys comedy Leo Gorcey made after the death of his father, Bernard. While it can be seen that he is intoxicated during most of the filming, this film is hysterical. Leo and Huntz recite the old wheezy jokes as if they were brand new. The supporting players are poor, but their ineptitude adds to the comedy. This is the first film with Jimmy "Myron" Murphy replacing Bennie "Butch" Bartlett. Murphy and David Gorcey actually get to do more than usual and they even get some good punch lines. True, the story revolves around Huntz Hall, but Gorcey has a lot of funny comments to make during the 63 minutes. It is surprising that the film is so funny since neither Ed Bernds nor Elwood Ullman have anything to do with it. Jean Yarbrough directs this time and he makes it look like his work with Abbott and Costello. The Bowery Boys series was never the same after Leo Gorcey left. He was replaced by that "other guy", Stanley Clements. Clements is OK, but it's like Joe Besser replacing Shemp (not to mention Shemp replacing Curly) in the Three Stooges. Besser and Clements are good performers, but they just don't have the spark of their predecessors. I always wondered why David Gorcey just didn't get promoted; "Chuck" could have been the new chief of the Bowery Boys. Why not?
