Smart Alecks Reviews:

Yes, the "Eastside Kids" are not exactly as young as the characters they seek to portray, but then this is the movies. I purchased 10 CDs of the Eastside Children for $19.95 and considered it a steal. Their films are fun to watch, if only for the goofs. This was the fifth films in the set that I watched. Of course, when I was a lot younger, I used to watch their films on TV, but that was a long time ago.I have to disagree with the another opinion about this film. Of the five I have watched so far, this was the best. It now had a plot, and even subplots, and some nice acting. I enjoyed it and laughed out loud at the final scene.I just want they had listed Ernest Morrison by his true name in the credits, as they do for all the another actors, instead of listing him as "Sunshine Sammy." Considering the part he has to play, he deserves it, as he plays meatier roles than some of the white actors.Oh, and they finally got a nice looking actress to enjoy the female lead.Tom


East Side children are a gang of old looking kids. Danny "the only half-way appealing" child is rewarded $200 for tripping a wanted criminal thereby leading to the man's arrest. Rest of the East Side children trust that the cash belongs to them and take it away from Danny and throw him out of the gang. At this mission you tell to yourself "Danny, leave these bunch of hoods behind!" The person Danny sent to jail escapes and beats up Danny. He is on the verge of death. The East Side children actually care again for Danny and he recovers and all receive fresh baseball uniforms with the $200. More happens but nothing very interesting. A dull movie with characters that are not very likable. You are left asking - don't these "kids" ever plan on getting a job?


Whom do children look up to and imitate? Certainly not parents nor any adults. Children admire older kids. Thus, the East Side Children were a nice act for the grade school crowd of the 1940s.. Their soon Bowery Men iterations were method too old to be the comedy sensation of the fourth grade. They wore suits for Pete's sake. Thus, the East Side Children should be-and could be- childishly silly and immature. They had to act like children and to a nice extent, they did. They seemed like a true gang of road children (albeit a tad too old) as opposed to the adult hapless loafers of The Bowery BoysHere the terrible guys are children also. Maxie Rosebloom played a hero (as usual) so dumb that he made Satch/Glimpy seem like a veritable Stephen Hawkins He was the "boss" of the criminal gang-which only seemed to have one another member, anyway. Perfect!The only critical trouble is: did children like this film when it came out? Well, I did
