That Gang of Mine was a touching East Side Kids film about dreams that may or not come true
This is the second East Side Kids film to feature former Our Ganger Ernie "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison as Scruno. In this one, Muggs (Leo Gorcey) wants to be a jockey and so when Clarence Muse arrives at the gang's barn with a horse, Muggs befriends Muse and gets his chance. Now in some films, an unlikely hero cast as the lead usually emerges triumphant against all odds. What happens here I'll just let you find out when you decide to watch this and yes, That Gang of Mine is worth a look for any fan of the East Side Kids. Another point of interest is Ernie Morrison's character having an interesting dialogue with Muse about Muggs and their take of his chances and how they know about what they know. Also, Mr. Morrison does an entertaining tap dancing scene when Muse sings a song.
