Up Pops The Devil
9 April 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

After seeking inspiration for stories from every source available the Bowery Boys finally had a Faust type story where Sach gets to sell his soul to a most polite little devil played by Byron Foulger. Of course the story is also laced with elements from the Marx Brothers A Day At The Races and Abbott&Costello's It Ain't Hay.

It all begins innocently enough with Huntz Hall wanting to get money to help a polio stricken kid. All you have to say is that you would do anything and up pops the devil with a tempting offer. The devil has many tips on horse races, but somehow due to Bowery Boy shenanigans, Hall never gets to place a bet.

Best scene in the film is Huntz Hall with Fritz Feld as a psychiatrist who with his ingenuousness Hall manages to turn the tables on. Seems as though Stan Clements thinks Hall is off his rocker talking to imaginary people.

It's not saying much but Up In Smoke might be the best of the post Gorcey Bowery Boys films.
