MPAA Ratings: Approved
"A part of the popular series of films based on East Side kids, this fast paced episode showcases the intense rivalry between two friends turned adversaries. Director Wallace Fox does an excellent job of portraying the innermost struggles of youngsters desperately searching for ways of being accepted by an unforgiving world. Leo Gorcey and Bobby Jordan play the roles of two youngsters with contrasting personalities and goals. The strong sociological message for youngsters to keep off the streets is continued in this narrative and is conveyed in a convincing manner. Some good performance - especially by Gorcey and Jordan - and a great script make this film a memorable one. Experience this moving saga of street boys, who hide a soft heart behind a facade of a tough exterior."
"Once a resident of the famous East Side myself, I seldom miss a movie whose plot centers on this fascinating corner of New York. Naturally I am thrilled at seeing this fabulous movie on DVD. I donít know how they do it but the film has been excellently preserved. The visuals are clear and the audio is as good as something recorded yesterday! I sure am glad that directors like Wallace Fox took it upon themselves to guide misguided kids back then. Thanks Wallace (If you are listening) and thanks a2zcds for this treat."

An old-movies addict, I had resigned myself to being content with scratchy films and bad audios until my son gifted me this fascinating movie on DVD. Boy, am I glad!
