BLONDE DYNAMITE (1950) ***/****

"I'll sue them for some salt and batteries".

The Bowery Boys' later films worked best when they were well written with something of a plot, and BLONDE DYNAMITE is one of these cases. It's quite good for one of their films from this period.

Slip Mahoney gets a brainstorm to send Louie Dumbrowski off on a vacation to Coney Island so he and the rest of the gang can transform Louie's sweet shop into an escort service. It isn't long before the boys get tangled up with unscrupulous crooks again in the bargain, but the laughs are pretty steady and the story stays tight.

"A brilliant seduction".
