Terrence 'Slip' Mahoney:
Ladies and gentlemen, gather around. Might be worth the price of admission. I am beginning to feel a surge of philanthropics welling up inside of me. Since I have been more fortunate than most unfortunates, I am in a position to enumerate some denominations. And I'm going to start off with the Bowery Milk Fund. To them, I'm going to give the derogatory sum of, eh, five thousand dollars!

Perpetually broke, Leo Gorcey (as Terrance "Slip" Mahoney) and Huntz Hall (as "Sach" Jones) are thrown out of "Louie's Sweet Shop" for lack of funds - they owe $3.80 to proprietor Bernard Gorcey (as Louie). After they contemplate splitting up for greener pastures, the duo stumble upon a stashed $50,000 gambling payoff. Believing their money woes are over, they launder (wash and dry) the money, with fellow "Bowery Boys" William "Billy" Benedict (as Whitey), David Gorcey (as Chuck), and Benny "Bennie" Bartlett (as Butch). Reporter friend Gabriel Dell (as Gabe) publicizes the find, which helps draw the attention of both the police and the original gamblers, who want the money bad...
With this entry, Mr. Bartlett (re-)joins the group, as "Butch Williams". Bartlett had been a member of both the "East Side" and the "Gas House" kids, and roamed in the recent Bowery release "Angels' Alley", as a wayward young criminal. Seniority goes to Mr. Benedict's "Whitey", however, for the scraps of lines not uttered by the starring team of Gorcey & Hall. Gorcey and the gang move into a "promiscuous" new clubhouse, and make the most of the haphazard storyline. Sheldon Leonard (as Lippy Harris) and Donald MacBride (as James Q. Broaderik) notably play their type. In short, everyone makes the most of "Jinx Money", which can be, in itself, appealing.
**** Jinx Money (6/27/48) William Beaudine ~ Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Sheldon Leonard
