Fighting an Invisible Foe in the Dark
This East Side Kids comedy was released on March 10, 1941, a few months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the U.S. entry into World War Two. Even though the U.S. had not begun sending men and bullets into war, we were still building planes and ships for the British war effort. In this comedy the East Side Kids, a gang of mis-fits from the lower east side of New York City, are working at an aircraft factory, and they get mixed up with spies determined to smuggle secret airplane plans out of the country.
As our adventure opens, we watch the gang going to work - well, all of the gang except Muggs, who is 'retired' and doesn't have time for something as consuming as 'work.' We discover that the owner of the plant is worried about sabotage, and worries about it a lot.
Meanwhile Muggs is intrigued by an airplane ambulance, and he learns about the use of an airplane to ferry critically ill patients to the best doctors possible. This airplane ambulance is owned by an eminent doctor who happens to be a secret enemy spy. He uses his ambulance plane to smuggle secret documents to the border and pass them off to waiting spies.
Through a series of comic events our gang of heroes discovers that the air ambulance is part of an enemy spy ring and arranges for one of their own to be the 'patient' that carries the secret plans to the border.
You won't be on the edge of your seat with suspense and terror, but the message gets through to the audience that even amidst our laughter at the mis-fit gang's comic antics, war is on the horizon for the U.S., and everyone must be on the lookout for the spies among us. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
