East Side Trouble
5 February 2013 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

They help move furniture and admire the architecture of The Brooklyn Bridge. But more importantly, "The Eastside Kids" Leo Gorcey (as Muggs McGinnis), Bobby Jordan (as Danny Lyons), Huntz Hall (as Glimpy), Ernest Morrison (as Scruno), Stanley Clements (as Stash) and Bobby Stone (as Skinny) save beautifully-shaped Anne Gillis (as Sylvia) from her wicked step-father. Unfortunately, this leads to Mr. Jordan being arrested for murder… which leads to Mr. Gorcey being blackmailed into heavy-duty crime...

This average Bowery entry is made engaging by the regular, semi-regular, and guest characterizations. Former "Dead End" kid turned "cheap crook" Gabriel Dell (as Skid) works for accomplished hood Marc Lawrence (as McGuffey). Returning "charter member" of the kid gang Noah Berry Jr. (as Butch) makes his first appearance and gets to romance Ms. Gillis, who hides out with the guys disguised as a boy. Making his last appearance on the Bowery is officer Dave O'Brien, always genuine as Jordan's big brother.
