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.

Smart Alecks is one of the better East Side Kids movies
This is one of the better East Side Kids movies with Bobby Jordan playing the one who gets a reward for helping aid in the capture of a criminal because of that criminal refusing to give his baseball back. The leading lady is Gale Storm who a decade later would have a couple of hit TV shows in "My Little Margie" and "The Gale Storm Show". Ernie "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison does a couple of entertaining tap dancing routines. And then there's Leo Gorcey who does both comedy and drama in fine form throughout. And don't forget Huntz Hall with some of the funniest lines as well as great slapstick between him and Gorcey. It's easy to see why they'd become such a successful comedy team for years. So on that note, I highly recommend Smart Alecks.
