Fighting trouble trailer
Fighting Trouble is a 1956 film starring the comedy team of The Bowery Boys. The film was released on September 16, 1956 by Allied Artists and is the forty-second film in the series. It was the first film in the series to feature Stanley Clements.
After Danny loses his job working for the New York Morning Blade. Sach and Duke decide to pay the editor a visit in order to get Danny his job back. However, the two instead agree to get a photograph of gangster Frankie Arbo for the newspaper. The Bowery Boys try several disguises in order to catch Arbo in the act before they finally decide to pose as gangsters themselves.
With the departure of Leo Gorcey, Hall had become the main attraction and thus the series was renamed Huntz Hall and the Bowery Boys with this film. It also marks the first appearance of Stanislaus 'Duke' Covelske, played by Stanley Clements. Other changes in the cast include Queenie Smith taking over for the role of their landlady, Mrs. Kelly and the addition of Danny Welton in his only appearance as a member of the gang.
The Bowery Boys
Warner Archives released the film on made-to-order DVD in the United States as part of "The Bowery Boys, Volume Four" on August 26, 2014.
