When Gabe arrives at the sweet shop, he is wearing his enlisted U.S. Navy uniform. The insignia on his sleeve indicates he was a Chief Electrician's Mate. On the right breast he is also wearing the Honorable Dischage insignia (also known as the "Ruptured Duck") indicating he had been honorably discharged from the Navy. See more »

Surprisingly...pretty much a typical Bowery Boys film.
Because this is an early Bowery Boys film, it features more than just Slip (Leo Gorcey) and Sach (Huntz Hall). Bobby Jordan and Whitey are on hand and the film is a better than average one for the team as a result. In the later films, any real pretense of a gang of friends is gone and it basically was the Slip & Sach Show...and the pictures were much more repetitive and less enjoyable.
The film begins with the boys graduating...from exterminator school. Soon they have their own insect extermination business and they are asked to take care of a creepy mansion that appears to be abandoned. But, there's actually a nutty scientist hiding in the basement doing experiments. At first he tries to scare away the boys but when he meets Sach he knows he'll be the perfect candidate for a brain transplant with gorilla!
Surprisingly enough, this enjoyable nonsense is pretty typical of a Bowery Boys film! The weird haunted house and brain transplant are both themes that would be repeated many times during the course of this franchise. It's very enjoyable if you like that sort of thing...and for others it might be a bit of a trial to get through this B-movie silliness.
