Clancy Street Boys (1943)

East Side Kids

When Samuel Goldwyn turned the play "Dead End" into a 1937 film, he recruited the original tough-talking kids from the play (Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Bobby Jordan, Gabriel Dell, Billy Halop, and Bernard Punsly) to repeat their roles in the film. This led to the making of six other films starring The Dead End (or East Side) Kids. Universal offered a competing series, under the Little Tough Guys brand name, featuring most of the same kids. Some of the same actors also played the Bowery Boys.
