The Bowery Boys Slip Up
11 September 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

"Dansant (meaning 'Dance and') Chowder party" chairman Leo Gorcey (as Slip Mahoney) and "Eagle Beak" sidekick Huntz Hall (as Sach Jones) celebrate raising $1,683 for needy New York City families, but are robbed by two crooks posing as sailors, before they delivering the funds to a local charity. To wit, Mr. Gorcey, Mr. Hall, William "Billy" Benedict (as Whitey), Buddy Gorman (as Butch), and David Gorcey (as Chuck) decide to track down the crooked sailors by joining the Navy. Gorcey asks, "Who but a silly moron would ever suggest looking for two sailors in the navy?"

"The Bowery Boys" spend much of their time swabbing the deck, which leads to the expected slip-ups. They look for the distinctive tattoo one of the robbers had on his chest, but everyone seems to keep their shirt on in this Navy. The showers don't turn out to be a good place to look for suspects, either - in once scene, Hall showers in full bed clothes and cap. "Let's Go Navy!" could be described as an average entry in the sitcom series. Possibly, Gorcey sneaks in the word "pee" for "tea" during once scene. Blustery Allen "Top Cat" Jenkins (as Mervin Longnecker) is a welcome guest star.

**** Let's Go Navy! (7/29/51) William Beaudine ~ Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Allen Jenkins, William 'Billy' Benedict
