Wonderfully Entertaining
17 July 2008 | by (california) – See all my reviews

One of my favorites when it comes to the Bowery Boys Series...indeed it is poignant that this was Louie's last appearance as he died in a car accident.

The series would never be the same and neither would Slip; but Huntz Hall bravely soldiered on as he was an under-rated comedic talent.

This episode has a modern feel to it and a lot of things came together to make this one an entertaining piece in the BB canon.

CHARACTER ACTORS have a vital role here:Raymond Hatton shines and i like Myron Healey as the "heel"

Louie needs to be singled out as a terrific foil;he is diffused w\charm and feistiness !

It's breezy and just plain fun....
