Anyone remembers the Bowery boys?

Growing up in the I laughed at their comedy and wild antics. The duo of Gorcey and Hall was in my top ten comedy shows. A look at how they started and why their legacy lives on.

The Dead End Kids-The Dead End Kids were a group of young actors from New York who appeared in Sidney Kingsley's Broadway play Dead End in 1935. In 1937 producer Samuel Goldwyn brought all of them to Hollywood and turned the play into a film. They proved to be so popular that they continued to make movies under various monikers, including the Little Tough Guys, the East Side Kids, and the Bowery Boys, until 1958.
