Goofs

When Slip and Sach are locked in the closet and sawing through the wall, there is only a horizontal cut. The next shot is the other side of the wall (inside the gorilla's cage), and there is a vertical cut at a 90-degree angle to the horizontal cut. They eventually cut a big hole in the wall. Later on, when Dr. Gravesend puts the gorilla back in the cage, the back wall shows no evidence of the hole Slip cut a few minutes earlier. See more »

Quotes

The Bowery Boys Rock
21 February 2007 | by gooelf50See all my reviews

I'm one of the few people around who can still recall seeing first release Bowery Boy movies. I was eleven years old when this one hit the silver screen. I can recall laughing until I cried when the monsters began appearing. Any hard core Bowery boy enthusiast recalls the wonderful job done by Leo Gorcy, who played "Slip" Mahoney and Huntz Hall who played "Satch". They played off each other perfectly and their on screen characterization of a pair of gang members from the mid century Bowery made the comedy that much sweeter. I can't recall seeing a Bowery Boys movie that I didn't like. Some were better than others, but my buddies and I would have walked to the next town to see any of their movies. Oddly enough, Leo Gorcy died quite young without much money. He passed away in 1969 at about 52 years of age. Huntz Hall on the other hand lived to be about 80 years old and passed away in 1999. He apparently was quite well off, having owned a 10% interest in the Bowery Boys and having made some very profitable oil and gas investments. I owe a lot of happy hours to these two fine actors from the early years of movie comedy.
