Alfalfa still can't sing
27 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

After seeing what low budget success Sam Katzman was having over at Monogram with the Bowery Boys, the folks at PRC put together their own youthful group of miscreants. The Gas House Kids is a pale imitation of the Bowery Boys and when you consider their stuff was pretty low brow what can you imagine this crew is like.

Benny Bartlett, Rudy Wister, Tommy Bond, and Carl Switzer are the Gas House Kids and they're going to Hollywood to meet their idol, movie detective Michael Whalen. On the way they get involved with some girls, a pair of murders, a scientist in a haunted house in addition to finding out that they're idol Whalen isn't quite what they make him out to be.

We do find out one thing, even after he's grown up and lost that screeching soprano, Alfalfa still couldn't sing worth a lick. And he's not enough reason to tune in to this crew. Unlike the Bowery Boys this bunch has no distinctive personalities the way Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall were.
