Storyline

This film is a 1949 compilation from two films in the "McGuerin" streamliners series made by Hal Roach in 1942; "The McGuerins from Brooklyn" and "Taxi, Mister" which accounts for players Lew Kelly, Clyde Fillmore and Tyler Brooke being in a 1949 movie. The film opens with a clip from "The McGuerins From Brooklyn" in which Tim McGuerin and Eddie Corbett are being honored for growing their cab fleet from one in 1928 to a current 300. Lucy Gibbs asks Corbett how they got to this point, and his explanation is a flashback to an edited version of "Taxi, Mister", where Tim is romancing his future wife, burlesque performer Sadie O'Brien, whose obvious charms have also caught the eye of gangster Louis Glorio, who is not too thrilled at the attention Tim is paying Sadie. Tim's romantic problems are solved when the police discover that Glorio is also the long-wanted and mysterious figure known as the Frisco Ghost.

Interesting... the title card for this film actually says Hal Roach Presents "Two Knights IN Brooklyn", but TCM.com and TV Guide.com have it listed as "Two Knights FROM Brooklyn". At the bottom of the same card, it says "Adapted from Taxi, Mister and The McGuerins from Brooklyn. It opens with William Bendix and Joe Sawyer as Eddie Corbett and Tim McGuerin, flashing back to see how they got their start as cab drivers. For a detailed plot summary, see that section of IMDb. Bendix always played the blue-collar, joe palooka type, mispronouncing words. Also in this compilation are Max Baer and Alan Hale Jr. Hale was the Skipper on Gilligan's Island, and Max Baer was the professional boxer, who appeared in several films, and was whose SON was Jethro Bodine on the Beverly Hillbillies. Also look for Sheldon Leonard, who wrote, directed, and produced about half the TV shows in the 1950s, 1960s & 1970s. He plays Louie Glorio, who runs the nightclub in town. Nothing really new here. I'd suggest watching the two original films from which is was made.
