Those Army Days
2 April 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Bowery Boys were running out of material before Bernard Gorcey died and Leo Gorcey quit the series. Looking For Danger is a great example of same.

With Louie Dumbrowski's Sweet Shop closed down the boys now freeload off Dick Elliott complete with Irish brogue who is now playing Mike Clancy of Clancy's Diner. An officious looking man comes in from the War Department looking for a cooking pot missing since World War II. Someone should have mentioned to this man that he has been working for the Department of Defense since 1947. It was signed out to Stanley Clements, but it's one Horace DeBussy Jones who tells the story of their wartime experiences when the Boys went behind enemy lines to deliver a message to a Moroccan sheik during the North African campaign.

It wasn't mentioned, but the reason that Stanley Clements and Huntz Hall got the assignment is because they're sergeant considered them the most expendable troops in Eisenhower's whole invasion force. A valid assessment, but after assorted intrigues with various people, the guys actually come through and alive.

Dick Elliott was tried after Percy Helton did the Clancy role in two films to give the series a replacement for Bernard Gorcey, but the whole series was creaking to a conclusion.

At this point the producers were just mixing and matching from some of their other films and even Huntz Hall finally at center stage was losing some enthusiasm for his character.
