CELEBRATE THE DARK VAULT’S 11th ANNIVERSARY WITH TWO UNCLE PETES!!!

UNCLE PETE DOES SOME HIGH ROLLIN’ IN THIS WEEK’S EPISODE

Today marks the 11th anniversary of THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!  And as an extra added bit of festivity, we’re bringing you not only a great feature with our favorite street gang, but also not one UNCLE PETE but TWO UNCLE PETES  to help the party along!!!  And everyone knows, 2 UNCLE PETES are better than one.   Well, 2 UNCLE PETES are twice as much anyway.  This week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN it’s UNCLE PETE in the DARK VAULT and UNCLE PETE in the feature with the East Side Kids adventure Clancy Street Boys.  Muggs (Leo Gorcey) and his mother get a letter from their Uncle Pete Monahan (Noah Beery), a close friend of Muggs’ late father (played in photograph only by Bernard Gorcey, Leo’s real father).  Problem is, Pa stretched the truth a little and told Uncle Pete that there were seven little ones instead of just Muggs.  Uncle Pete, being a generous, genuinely nice guy (as real Uncle Pete’s always are), has been sending regular checks to Muggs’ Ma to help take care of the brood.  But now he’s coming to visit.

UNCLE PETE AND THE GANG WATCH MUGGS GET READY FOR SOME BRONC BUSTIN’

So Muggs drafts the gang to pretend to be his siblings (as well as his brothers and sisters), including Scruno (Sunshine Sammy Morrison) and even Glimpy (Huntz Hall) as little Annabelle.  Uncle Pete gets miffed when he finds out the truth, but when some shady characters try to extort some cash out of the rich Texan, it’s the gang to the rescue.

This is the first time William Beaudine directed the boys, but not the last as he directed several more films and much of the Bowery Boys series.  Also featuring Bobby Jordan as Danny, Amelita Ward as Uncle Pete’s daughter Judy and a special appearance by Bernard Gorcey as the owner of a liquor store (which of course he would convert into Louie’s Sweet Shop in the Bowery Boys films).  From 1943 it’s the East Side Kids and Uncle Pete in Clancy Street Boys.

UNCLE PETE AND HIS GOLFING BUDDIES

UNCLE PETE also manages to dig up a whole bunch of trailers of the Dead End/East Side Kids to bring back a memory or two or maybe let you know of a movie you maybe never even heard of. Plus, there’s a The Three Stooges short!  Kirk Robin’s been murdered, Gail Tempest has been charged and Moe, Larry and Curly are the key witnesses.  There’s murder, music and mayhem as they testify in 1938’s Disorder In The Court (the first short where Curly was not spelled Curley!).

MOE, LARRY, AND CURLY ENGAGE IN A ROUSING GAME OF JACKS

So grab your favorite refreshments and settle in this Saturday night, September 15, 2018 – exactly 11 years to the day after the very first DVoPD hit the airwaves!  In Binghamton, southern NY from way west of Corning to way east of Binghamton, and northern PS watch on channel 1301, on channel 99 in the Utica/Rome area, channel 2 for Saranac and Tupper Lakes and the Plattsburgh area, and of course channel 30 in the North Country of New York State (Watertown/Champlain/Massena/Malone/Ogdensburg/etc.) from 10PM to midnight with replays at midnight and 2AM.  In Ithaca, NY, watch on channel 13 at 9PM and midnight.  AND BRAND NEW TODAY – everyone in the Cortland County and surrounding areas join the Dark Vault Channel Family on channel 2 at 10PM, midnight, and 2AM!!!  It’s a double dose of UNCLE PETES – and all in one big anniversary show – for Clancy Street Boys on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!

(And over on Beta Max TV on the Roku streaming device and all Roku TVs, it’s animated action with The Cavalcade Of Cartoon Carnage – Pt. I !)
