Looking for Danger (1957) **1/2
9 May 2011 | by JoeKarlosiSee all my reviews

I've always missed Leo Gorcey as the leader of the gang during these last several Bowery Boys comedies, but I'll be darned if I didn't enjoy this one anyway. The story's pretty decent, as we hear a story related about when the scatterbrained Sach (Huntz Hall) was a spy back during WWII with his bossy partner Duke (Stanley Clements, who replaces Leo Gorcey). Thanks to some salvageable writing by the usually dependable pairing of Edward Bernds & Elwood Ullman (The Three Stooges), there are some slight but welcome chuckles spread throughout, and this one goes down pretty easily. Huntz Hall had to carry a lot of the weight on his own shoulders in these final features, but he comes through just fine here. **1/2 of ****
