JOIN THE SUMMER JACUZZI PARTY IN THE DARK VAULT THIS WEEK!
Summertime is under way and we’re in a party mood this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN. Join UNCLE PETE as he brings you our favorite gang of All-American delinquents in the 1941 East Side Kids feature Bowery Blitzkrieg. Long time pals Danny (Bobby Jordan) and Muggs (Leo Gorcey) are up to their usual hi-jinx in the Bowery. Danny is working hard to make something of himself – studying and boxing and keeping his nose clean – in large part due to the encouragement of his sister Mary (Charlotte Henry – the one and only Bo Peep from The March Of The Wooden Soldiers). But Muggs is busy using his fists and wise-cracks and hanging out at Clancy’s (played by Key (no second e here) Luke). Mary’s policeman fiance – having seen his childhood buddy wind up on death row – takes Muggs under his wing and gets him involved in the city-wide boxing competition representing the local Bowery’s finest. Friction with Muggs sends Danny to keep company with some seedy characters for some quick cash, not knowing his new creepy friends are trying to set up Muggs to take a dive in the championship.
Will Muggs take a dive? Will Danny go up the river? It’s another dose of great Bowery Boys action, drama and humor. Directed by Wallace Fox and also starring David Gorcey as Peewee, Sunshine Sammy Morrison as Scruno and introducing Huntz Hall as Limpy, it’s Bowery Blitzkrieg.
And don’t forget your swimsuits and towels cuz UNCLE PETE is throwin a Jacuzzi Party! He’s sent Azul and 42nd Street Jimmy to dig a brand new combination in-ground jacuzzi/swimming pool/nuclear generator coolant tank in preparation for the festivities. UNCLE PETE gathers the tunes from the Nipsey Russell wing of the DARK VAULT RECORD LIBRARY, selecting just the right records for the celebration. Unfortunately, the Clones do a little too good of a job digging and find you really can get to China that way.
UNCLE PETE and El Vato dig up some other cinematic nuggets for your entertainment and general enrichment as well. From 1958, it’s The Grapevine – an educational short about the dangers of rumors. Our favorite animated cutie – Betty Boop – is joined by Koko, Bimbo and Louis Armstrong in 1931’s I’ll Be Glad When You’re Dead You Rascal You. And there’s good old Burt the Turtle in his famous Civil Defense flic – Duck and Cover (perhaps still as informative today as it was when first shown).
So tune in this Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 (Binghamton), channel 17 (Sayre area), and channel 99 (Elmira/Corning/Hornell). It’s a ton of trailers, a selection of shorts, a fight filled feature, and a summer party with 1941’s Bowery Blitzkrieg and your host UNCLE PETE on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
