Movie Info

Tricked into thinking that he's on his way to a boxing training camp, tough-guy Muggs Maloney (Leo Gorcey) finds himself put to work by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Though he quickly alienates most of the other laborers, Muggs manages to befriend young Willie (Bobby Stone), who claims that his mother needs an operation. He enters a boxing tournament in town, planning to turn the reward money over to Willie, but loses the bout. Willie then robs the CCC camp safe, a crime for which Muggs is blamed. Our hero's pal Danny (Bobby Jordan) saves the day by revealing that Willie is an adroit liar whose mom is in perfect health. Joseph H. Lewis' directorial virtuosity in the prizefight scenes help to save Pride of the Bowery from mediocrity.
