GHOSTS, BEAGLES, AND WHITTLIN’
It’s Dracula Vs. Muggs (and Glimpy and Danny and the Gang) this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN! Join UNCLE PETE and his ever faithful Beagle OXNARD at LAKE DARK VAULT for the suspense filled 1943 comedy thriller Ghosts On The Loose. Starring Leo Gorcey as Muggs, Huntz Hall as Glimpy, Bobby Jordan as Danny and Sunshine Sammy Morrison as Scruno we find the Boys helping with all the wedding preparations for Glimpy’s sister Betty (played by Ava Gardner in one of her early roles) including taking care of the music. Jack, Betty’s intended (played by Rick Vailin) has recently purchased a little home in the suburbs for which to settle in with his new bride. The Gang decides to go out and do a little extra fixin’ up for the happy couple but mistakenly goes to the mansion next door. Meanwhile, when Jack receives an offer to sell his cottage he learns that the mansion next door is said to be haunted. Mysterious things have the Gang thinking there are ghosts about, but they don’t realize that Emil (Bela Lugosi) has his Nazi bunch hidden in the mansion plotting all kinds of evil. One of the most classic exchanges in all of filmdom occurs between Scruno and Emil as the Boys explore the secret passages and Scruno utters the immortal “Who Dat!” The film also features popular film star Wheeler Oakman as Tony and Stanley Clements as Stash. Clements, who didn’t appear in any more East Side Kids films would resurface in the 1950’s as Duke, the leader of The Bowery Boys after Leo Gorcey’s retirement. Plus, make sure to listen for (and watch) Bill Bates as Sleepy, who actually plays the organ in his only East Side Kids appearance in this week’s feature Ghosts On The Loose.
UNCLE PETE, OXNARD, Max and Stone Dog are relaxing at LAKE DARK VAULT and getting crafty with a little whittling with his 47 blade pocket knife – including the sterling steel dinner service. UNCLE PETE also finds time to bring you a short from our favorite trio – The Three Stooges. From 1936, it’s Disorder In The Court. Who Dat Say Who Dat When I Say Who Dat? It could be Scruno, it could be Bela Lugosi, it might just be UNCLE PETE. It’s whittlin, hound dogs, ghosts and a few eye pokes this Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4. So head to the lake with UNCLE PETE and OXNARD for Ghosts On The Loose the next feature presentation on the DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
