East Side Kids

(1940)

62 minutes.

Film / Comedy / Crime / Drama

Directed by Robert F. Hill

Cast: Harris Berger, Hall Chester, Frankie Burke and Donald Haines

The first entry, sort of, in the East Side Kids series. Produced by Four Bell Productions, which only produced this single picture, the film does not feature the Leo Gorcey / Huntz Hall combination that made the East Side Kids so popular. The story starts when Officer Pat O'Day founds a junior police club to get troubled youth off of the streets. Pat believes from experience that "idle hands lead to trouble" so he finds donors that give equipment for the kids to use in a youth center. Pat tries to persuade his childhood street pal Knuckles Dolan, imprisoned for murdering a policeman, to reveal who really committed the crime. Knuckles won't talk of course, but O'Day is convinced his conviction will drive Dolan's younger brother Danny into a life of corruption. Officer Pat tries to instill positive values in Danny and his wayward friends, but he's constantly foiled by the smooth talking, quick thinking Milton Mileway, who succeeds in luring Danny and the Kids into his counterfeit money operation. Finally Pat realizes he might be able to recruit Danny, who is the leader of the East Side Kids, to find the real killer.
