Storyline

Hanging out in Mike Clancy's diner, the Bowery Boys are engaged in their usual loafing sessions; Sach works on a puzzle book; Duke chows down on Clancy's Irish-stew special, and Myron, Chuck and Blinky are looking at the pictures in the eatery's library of comic books. Two diners, real-estate agent Harry Shelby and his assistant, Dolly Owens, hear that Mike has been ordered by his doctor to take a long rest in the country. They sell him "Cedar Crest," -a paradise in the mountains---which actually had been a robber's hideout. Mike and the Bowery Boys move to the place and find a dilapidated farmhouse. While doing repairs, they find a secret compartment containing new banknotes. Thinking they have found a recluse's treasure, they pay off the mortgage on Cedar Crest. This draws the attention of three hoodlums, Snap, Ziggie and Ernie, who order Shelby to buy back the place. Sach, Duke and Mike refuse the offer, even when told the place is haunted. Meanwhile Dolly has vamped Sach into ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

"What a nice place to grow poison ivy."
2 November 2016 | by utgard14See all my reviews

The Bowery Boys get mixed up with gangsters in an old dark house in this tired entry, the forty-fifth in the series. Humpbacked Percy Shelton plays the cafe owner Mike, yet another attempt to replace the irreplaceable Bernard Gorcey. I like him in many other roles but he's not quite the right fit for the exasperated old gentleman that has to put up with the boys' hijinks. Huntz Hall does OK but he continues to be 'off' without Leo Gorcey. He just doesn't have the same chemistry with boring Stanley Clements and he seems to be trying too hard with the constant mugging for the camera. David Gorcey and Jimmy Murphy are their usual forgettable selves. Eddie LeRoy also joins the gang as Blinky. He makes no impression. Darlene Fields plays the obligatory eye candy. It's a comedy but it's not very much fun. The haunted house gags are worn-out and, at this point, Sach making stupid faces just isn't cutting it anymore.
