Silly, almost surreal
2 April 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

You have to hand it to Leo Gorcey. When he dreams, he dreams big. Slip and Satch see an a male escort bureau and see no reason why he and the rest of the Bowery Boys couldn't do this job. With his savoir faire and command of the English language no telling how far they could rise.

When Gorcey and Huntz Hall are thrown out after they apply, are they discouraged? Not in the least, they persuade Bernard Gorcey he needs a vacation in Coney Island. Then they take over Louie's Sweet Shop and turn it into their own escort bureau.

But there's a gang headed by Harry Lewis with his moll Adele Jergens who have their own plans for the Sweet Shop. They've even got Slip and Satch's pal Gabriel Dell in a jackpot as part of said plans. Part of that plan consists of hiring the whole gang as escorts for her some of her pals. You have to see Jergens vamping Billy Benedict who when he was a Bowery Boy got in a bit of his own business involving his naiveté. Benedict played kids in other than the Bowery Boys well into his 30s. As for Jergens she had a specialty in trying to seduce man children types. See how she does in Abbott&Costello Meet The Invisible Man with Lou.

I won't get into what the gang wants the Sweet Shop for, but it's funny, in fact it gets downright silly and almost surreal. Suffice it to say the Sweet Shop becomes a Sweet Shop again for the next Bowery Boy film.
