review by
Mike Haberfelner

Slip (Leo Gorcey) and the boys (William 'Billy' Benedict, Buddy Gorman, David Gorcey) have persuaded Louie (Bernard Gorcey), owner of their favourite soda place, to pay for their pal Sach's (Huntz Hall) tonsil surgery. However, thanks to Sach's careless attitude with other people's money the hospital costs are completely blown out of proportion, putting Louie in debt, which sends Slip on a rare guilt trip - but then it's discovered that the surgery has left Sach with a beautiful singing voice (provided by John Laurenz). Good thing then that the boys' friend Gabe (Gabriel Dell) is a composer and musician, so he helps Sach on the artistic side of things while Slip and Louie turn Louie's soda fountain into a night club that thanks to Sach's performances proves so successful that it almost drives the across the street club run by Rick Martin (Craig Stevens) out of business. And Rick knows, to turn things around, he has to get Sach to sing for him - so he gets his moll Lola (Adele Jergens) to seduce Sach, and before you know it, he has accidently signed a contract with Rick. This is pretty much the death knell for Louie's night club, with its main attraction now being Slip's girlfriend Sally (Phyllis Coates) doing a tapdance routine. Thing is, Rick is rather fond of Sally, which gives her an idea: She tries to seduce him but makes sure that Lola walks in on them - and after catching Rick with Sally, Lola is only too happy to spill the beans to Slip and the gang that she has only tricked Sach into signing ...

It all ends happily with Sach singing at Louie's night club again - or should end happily, as Sach has lost his singing voice after another medical treatment ...


As a whole, the Bowery Boys series of films was rather uneven in quality, and frankly, over the years it has hit more lows than highs - but Blues Busters is one of their best movies, as while the film's story might not be exactly original, it's well written and structured, features some nice character work, two rather hilarious seduction scenes full of innuendo that take unexpected routes, and Huntz Hall actually does a pretty good Frank Sinatra/Bing Crosby parody. Good fun for sure.
