The Dead End Kids, The Little Tough Guys, The Eastside, And The Bowery Boys Where All The Same Kids. The Difference Was The Studio Name. “The Dead End Kids” Originally Appeared In The 1935 Play Dead End. Samuel Goldwyn Turned The Play Into A 1937 Film, And Recruited The Original “Kids” From The Play (Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Bobby Jordan, Gabriel Dell, Billy Halop, And Bernard Punsly) To Appear In The Film. This Led To The Making Of Six Other Films That Shared The Collective Title “The Dead End Kids” At Goldwyn. In 1938, Universal Launched Its Own Tough-Kid Series, “Little Tough Guys.” Gradually, Universal Recruited Most Of The Original Dead End Kids, So The Series Ultimately Featured “The Dead End Kids And Little Tough Guys.” Universal Made Twelve Feature Films, And Three 12-Chapter Serials With The Gang. When Warner Brothers Released The Remaining Dead End Kids From Their Contracts In 1939, Producer Sam Katzman At Monogram Acted Quickly And Hired Several Of Them, Including Jordan And The Gorcey Brothers, Leo And David, As Well As Some Of The Little Tough Guys, Including Hally Chester, To Star In A New Series Using The Team Name “The East Side Kids.” These Films Also Introduced ‘Sunshine’ Sammy Morrison, One Of The Original Members Of The Our Gang Comedy Team, As Part Of The Gang. The Original Members Of The “Dead End Kids” Were Now Working At Several Studios, So These Films Were Made At The Same Time That Universal Was Making “The Dead End Kids” And “Little Tough Guys” Series. A Total Of 21 Films Were Made. In 1945, When East Side Kids Producer Katzman Refused To Grant Leo Gorcey’s Request To Double His Weekly Salary, Gorcey Quit The Series, Which Then Ended Immediately. Bobby Jordan Then Suggested A Meeting With His Agent, Jan Grippo. Grippo, Gorcey, And Hall Formed Jan Grippo Productions, Revamped The Format, And Rechristened The Series The Bowery Boys. (The Earlier Films’ Credits Appear As “Leo Gorcey And The Bowery Boys”.) Gorcey, Who Owned 40 Percent Of The Company, Starred, Produced, And Contributed To The Scripts. The New Series Followed A More Established Formula Than The Prior Incarnations Of The Team, With The Gang Usually Hanging Out At Louie’s Sweet Shop (At 3rd & Canal St.) Until An Adventure Came Along. The Complete Bowery Boys, Eastside Kids, Dead End Kids & Little Tough Guys Movie Collection Contains Movies That You Might Not Have Heard Of Before But They All Are Movies With Bowery Boys, Eastside Kids, Dead End Kids Or Little Tough Guys.
