I can't stand much of the Bowery Boys' antics - to be fair though, they have made a multitude of films and I have only attempted to endure a handful. Naturally, I'm drawn to this little gem because of the incredible gorilla suit worn by Art Miles. I love Art's suit - it is distinctive and has a natural aspect that stands apart from most that you see on film during the 40's. Surprisingly, this suit has appeared in just a handful of films though Art Miles has dozens of credits for bit roles from the early 30's until 1950. I have a notion there may be a few more out there waiting to be discovered since he employed it over nearly a decade.
The trailer below has a quick glimpse of Art about 2/3rd's of the way through, so be sharp.
