Because Sach (Huntz Hall) has developed the ability to smell diamonds, Slip (Leo Gorcey) decides to take him and the boys (David Gorcey, Benny Bartlett) to the African jungle to sniff out a few diamonds for Alfie Grimshaw (Patrick O'Moore) and his expedition. Of course, Sach messes things up from day one, when he accidently burns the map they are following and being afraid to admit it leads the others through the jungle in circles. When Slip finds this out, he casts Sach out, and Sach is almost killed by a lion but saved by a beautiful jungle girl (Laurette Luez), who then disappears, and when he crosses paths with the expedition again, the native bearers hail him as lion killer.

However, there is another real threat that faces our heroes: Dr Goebel (Rudolph Anders) and Shanks (Harry Cording), two baddies who want to get their hands on the diamonds as well, and thus on the kid with the diamond nose, and they have brought savage natives as their backup. Much to and fro ensues, but when evrything looks the grimest for our heroes, they are saved by the jungle girl ... and of course, everything ends happily, and in the end, Sach gets the (jungle) girl - that is, until Tarzan (Clint Walker) arrives ...

 

There are a few amusing moments in this movie, especially since Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall just work as a comedy duo, but overall, it's just a pointless hourlong sequence of stale jokes and jungle clichées. Not the worst of the Bowery Boys probably, but also not something to remember.
