It's been two weeks of unrelenting New York City summer heat. Sooner or later the boys are apt to get into mischief, so Knuckles takes the load of 'em to Algy's father's camp in the mountains. The trip gets sidetracked when they cross paths with Judge Parker' party on the road. The Judge, hiding from the mob, is desperately heading to his mountain manor when he runs the boys' vehicle off the road, nearly disabling it right before his own car conks out. With only the boys' car barely able to travel, they all wind up at the judge's manor where ghostly sightings, spooky organ music, death threats and a creepy housekeeper await them. Judge Parker is the very judge who once nearly put Knuckles on death row for murder. When the judge turns up dead, Knuckles is in trouble again, with little brother Danny and the gang ready to help him out.Written by
The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

When the judge realizes the mob is trying to kill him, he decides to flee to his country home. When his bodyguard is told this, the bodyguard tries to call his mother to tell her he will be out of town. The judge stops the bodyguard by telling him the phones may be tapped and the mob will then know where the judge is. Later, when they arrive at his country home, the judge is upset that there are no lights on and that his housekeeper doesn't answer the door. He tells the others, "Where could she be? I called and told her we were coming." See more »

The East Side boys like Mugs Malone played by Leo Gorcey and Bobby Jordan and his pals get to leave the city for a time in the country. They end up at a Gothic, haunted mansion where the housekeeper is my favorite character. She blames somebody for the death of her beloved mistress well the former lady of the house. I love the comment she makes about the cook which is "I liked the cook." The gang try to help a pretty damsel in distress who is caught up with some shady characters including a judge and others. It's the East Side Boys to her rescue and the house in Westchester's Briarcliff Manor. The pretty young lady is an heiress. Anyway, the East Side Boys was to escape during the 1940s time period when the country was coming off of the Great Depression and going into World War II. This film isn't great but it's entertaining even now.
