Remaining cast


With the departure of Leo Gorcey, Hall had become the main attraction and thus the series was renamed Huntz Hall and the Bowery Boys with this film. It also marks the first appearance of Stanislaus 'Duke' Covelske, played by Stanley Clements. Other changes in the cast include Queenie Smith taking over for the role of their landlady, Mrs. Kelly and the addition of Danny Welton in his only appearance as a member of the gang.

Warner Archives released the film on made-to-order DVD in the United States as part of "The Bowery Boys, Volume Four" on August 26, 2014.
