Lost the Pot and the Plot
4 April 2011 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Still hanging out at "Clancy's Cafe" in New York City, haphazard Huntz Hall (as Horace Debussy "Sach" Jones) and "The Bowery Boys" are worrying about local gangsters when a government agent arrives to demand Stanley Clements (as Stanislaus "Duke" Coveleskie) return a cooking pot he was issued during service in World War II. This leads to a flashback with Mr. Hall and Mr. Clements embarking on an important wartime mission...

Interestingly, "The Bowery Boys" in the past resemble the present team. David Gorcey (as Chuck), Jimmy Murphy (as Myron) and Eddie LeRoy (as Blinky) are there, along with Dick Elliott (as Mike Clancy) taking over the café proprietor role for the duration. It's almost impossible to recall the original "cooking pot" plot as Hall and Clements impersonate German officers, then don Arabian garb. "Looking for Danger" repeatedly lands the hapless duo in jail.

*** Looking for Danger (10/6/57) Austen Jewell ~ Huntz Hall, Stanley Clements, Lili Kardell, Richard Avonde
