Overview

Wallace W. Fox's 'Neath the Brooklyn Bridge (1942) looks about as good on Alpha's DVD as it did in countless television showings during the mid- to late '60s, when it was still under copyright, and it sounds even better. The source print is clean and intact, without a lot of surface blemishes or other problems; oddly enough, only a stock shot of the Brooklyn Bridge early in the movie reveals excessive scratches. The transfer is well lit without being oversaturated. The image is clear and sharp enough to reveal that Sammy "Sunshine" Morrison was actually hurt in the first fight scene of the movie by one of the punches thrown. There are also a few missing frames at the very tail end of the last reel, but nothing to offend the purchaser. As with most Alpha Video issues, the disc is easy to use and simple to access, and offers six chapter breaks.The East Side Kids, featuring Leo Gorcey, Gabriel Dell and Huntz Hall, star in this spirited blend of action and comedy. The kids come to the rescue of a hysterical young girl who is discovered in the apartment with a murdered man. Convinced she's not the killer, the guys hide her as they comb the neighborhood for the real murderer. However, one of the kids made the mistake of picking up the baseball bat that appears to be the murder weapon, and now the fingerprints could point the police investigation at them. 'Neath The Brooklyn Bridge also features Dave O'Brien (best known for his eccentric performance in Reefer Madness) and Noah Beery Jr..
