Looking for Danger (1957)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Decent entry in the Bowery Boys series starts off in the present day as Sach (Huntz Hall) and Duke (Stanley Clements) are inside a diner talking about a string of robberies when a government man walks in asking about their days in the war and a pot that went missing. Duke then flashes back to their WWII days when he and Sach had to go undercover as Nazis and try to bring down an Arab group working for the Germans. LOOKING FOR DANGER was the forty-sixth entry in the series and there's no question that fresh ideas were few and far between in the final dozen films but this here turned out to be one of the better entries. There's certainly no ground-breaking writing or Oscar-worthy performances but there are enough laughs to make the 62-minutes fly by so fans of the series will certainly want to check this one out. I thought the film had a pretty bold sense of humor about the war. I'm not certainly how many movies were making fun of WWII events by 1957 but I personally haven't seen too many and for this reason alone much of the humor really stands out. One of the funniest scenes happens when Sach and Duke get the undercover job simply because their Sergent is told that this was a death mission and he sees this as a way of getting rid of them. Another funny joke happens when we get to the Arab country and Sach offends them by teaching their women jive dancing. There's quite a bit of humor that's certainly politically incorrect today including many jokes aimed at Arabs and their culture and it should go without saying but the German people also get made fun of quite a bit. The language as well as Hall and Clements' accent are pretty funny in their own right. The two actors once again show that their chemistry kept getting better with each passing film as the two work quite well off one another here and I also thought it was fairly interesting seeing Duke get pushed around by Sach for a change. If you're looking for a strong story then it's best to look else where because everything here is just meant to set up a joke. It's doubtful those who don't enjoy the series will find anything of value here but fans should enjoy the humor and the fast pace.
