"Sach" has become a camera fiend so, in the pursuit of some ready cash, "Duke" takes him and his photographs to the editor of the New York Morning Blade, Mr. Ray Vance. He hires them to get some photos of gangland boss Frankie Arbo but Mr. Arbo does not care to have his picture in the papers and dislikes cameramen for the same reason. "Sach" and "Duke" pose as interior decorators in the penthouse of Mae Randall in order to get photos of Arbo. Later, at Arbo's night club, the boys learn that the gangster is importing a tough hoodlum from Chicago. "Sach" and "Duke" lure the visiting gunman, Handsome Hal Lomax to Mrs. Kelly's boardinghouse and trick him into staying there through false police calls. "Sach" masquerades as Handsome Hal and gets away with it, and he and "Duke" manage to get into Arbo's inner office with the Boss and his henchmen, and the boys are cut into the gang's racket, which is counterfeit money. Then Handsome Hal shows up and things are getting dicey for the boys ...Written by

Leo Gorcey was fired from the last film, crashing Las Vegas for being intoxicated. The boys contract had seven more films to make. Hall assumed that the series would end, but the basic idea was reworked. Louie (Leo's Dad) had passed away. Leo walked out on negotiations with the studio. The usual faces are gone. Stanley Clements replaced Leo in the sense that he was teamed with Hall and the film's were under the banner of the Bowery Boys, but that's where it ends. Clements played a suited adult and Hall was now a man. These last seven films were like detective films or who done its. This film makers the first Bowery Boys film without Leo Gorcey, and the first with the new format. Fans regard these last seven films as not being true Bowery Boys movies. See more »
Before Sach (playing Handsome Hal) takes a drink in Frankie's office, a small puff of steam appears from behind his left ear. Of course after drinking, the steam starts pouring out in earnest. See more »
Even Huntz Hall seems to be tiring of the schtick in this post-Leo Gorcey Bowery Boys entry. It's the usual stuff only with fewer laughs, and without the Gorcey's (bar David, still filling his familiar role of Chuck) Huntz looked pretty bored.
