The Bowery Boys (Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Bobby Jordan, Gabriel Dell, William 'Billy' Benedict, David Gorcey) hang out in Louie's (Bernard Gorcey) Sweet Shop when a sheriff (Russell Simpson) from the West arrives on horseback, looking for Louie (who has since taken a powder). From Louie the boys learn that he's a wanted killer somewhere out West, but he claims he didn't do it but was framed by a character called Blackjack (Norman Willis), and since he has hidden out here in NYC and doesn't dare to go back, even if he has a treasure map tattooed onto his back, a treasure that was promised to little Katherine 20 years ago.

The boys are quick to copy the treature map onto Sach's (Huntz Hall) back, then take to the West ... where Sach is quick to give the secret of the treasure map on his back away and is kidnapped by Blackjack and gang, but the map is accidently washed off his back. The rest of the boys come to Sach's rescue but always seem to bungle things up, and it's only thanks to Gabe (Gabriel Dell) that they eventually win the trust of Blackjack ... though he's sure that one of the boys has the map on his back and tries to figure which one - but eventually, they manage to lure him into a trap and confess to the murder, and the boy even find baby Katherine (Julie Gibson), now an attractive bar singer. And since Louie is ultimately forced to join them out West (where he's vindicated), they also get their hands on the map and all ends happily ... until back in Louie's Sweet Shop, Sach awakens from one of his daydreams ...

Minerva Urecal plays the female Marshal of the region.

 

An ok Bowery Boys-comedy that's not especially great on story or execution, but at least features a few funny setpieces - especially the scene where Leo Gorcey pretends to be a tough guy (which he clearly is not) crossing a street and entering a saloon is surely laugh-worthy. In all, the jokes are of a hit-or-miss quality, but as long as you watch it, the whole thing's at least light-footed enough to be amusing. The boys though sure were in better movies - but truth to be told, also in a lot worse.
