The eighth Bowery Boys film from Monogram has Louie the Sweet Shop owner wanted for murder from his days living out west. Louie explains to the Bowery Boys how he was framed, which leads Slip and the others to decide to head out west to clear Louie's name. There's cowboys and Indians and a treasure map in this one, as well as a twist ending that will either make you laugh or have you throwing something at the screen.
Fun work from Bernard Gorcey as Louie in the beginning of the movie, including singing an adorable song called "Louie the Lout." The guest stars include Iron Eyes Cody, Russell Simpson, Minerva Urecal, and Julie Gibson. The Boys themselves (Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Bobby Jordan, Gabriel Dell, William Benedict, David Gorcey) are all good. This is the last Bowery Boys film for Bobby Jordan, who had been with the team since their Dead End beginnings. He grew tired of being a background player while Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall got the lion's share of the funny material (and profits). After this he did mostly TV work for the rest of his career before dying of cirrhosis at the age of 42. A sad end for an underrated talent. Ironically, it was Jordan introducing the boys to Jan Grippo that got the Bowery Boys series started. Grippo would act as producer on the first 23 Bowery Boys films. Anyway, as Slip Mahoney would say, "trivial trigonometries aside" this is a fun entry in the series with the Boys doing their shtick in a different setting than New York.
