After a tonsillectomy, hyper-maniac Huntz Hall (as Horace DeBussy "Sach" Jones) begins crooning like Bing Crosby (a fine dubbing imitation, by John Lorenz). Enterprising Leo Gorcey (as "Slip" Mahoney) turns the ageing youngsters' "Sweet Shop" hang-out into "Bowery Palace" with help from piano playing pal Gabriel Dell (as Gabe Moreno) and "Bowery Boys" William "Billy" Benedict (as Whitey), Buddy Gorman (as Butch), and David Gorcey (as Chuck); there, Mr. Hall becomes singing sensation "The Bowery Thrush". Alas, criminally-minded rivals want a piece of the action
Formulaic to a fault, with highlights being sweet 'n' sexy guest stars, like Phyllis Coates (as Sally Dolan) and Adele Jergens (as Lola Stanton). Note, "Blues Busters" features the last appearance of Mr. Dell, an original "Dead End" kid, in the Bowery series.
**** Blues Busters (10/29/50) William Beaudine ~ Huntz Hall, Leo Gorcey, Gabriel Dell, Phyllis Coates
