Word comes to the Bowery that titled, great, great grand-uncle of Horace Debussy Jones, better known as Sach, is near death and has provided transportation to summon relatives from around the world. Sach and the Bowery Boys, Slip Mahoney, Butch Williams, Chuck Anderson and Soda Shoppe owner Louie Dumbrowsky, trade Sach's pre-paid first class ticket for lesser (much lesser) accommodations and embark for ye olde London towne. There, they find the old man, the Earl of Walsingham already surrounded by sinister Sir Edgar Whipsnade; Reggie, the obligatory Fop; the spinster Aunt Agatha; the young and seductive Lady Marcia; moronic Cousin Herbert, and Hoskins, the Butler. They, of course,are assembled in a plot to slowly poison the old Earl and to get rid of Sach and his pals.Written by

The £1,000 check the Earl gives Satch would equate to $2,813 at the time, or about $27,200 in 2019. See more »
The attorney who informs Sach about Lord Walsingham uses the American pronunciation of that word although he introduces himself as a solicitor and has a British accent. Later we learn how differently "Walsingham" is pronounced in England, which is the pronunciation the British solicitor should have used. See more »
The Bowery Boys movies are hit and miss. This one is one of the hits. There are more smiles than laughs but that's okay. The movie is enjoyable. The boys are all in fine form, especially Huntz Hall. The last fifteen minutes or so of "Loose in London" is actually really funny. I put this one in the Bowery Boys win column.
