The Bowery Boys continue with their typical slap stick style of comedy plus classic misuse of words. The bad guys in this 1943 film are of course the Germans. Not as good as "Hold That Ghost" also from the black and white era.

The East Side Kids (Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Bobby Jordan, Sammy Morrison, Bobby Stone, Billy Benedict, Stanley Clements) meet Bela Lugosi (Dracula [1931]) again! They met him before as "Nardo" in SPOOKS RUN WILD" (1941). This is the second East Side Kids film William Beaudine has directed since CLANCY STREET BOYS (1943). William Beaudine believes in one takes only if it can be done. It was not rare for an East Side Kid film to be done in six days. Boy did he keep a "one-take" this time! Bela thought he would have some fun. The scene where Bela Lugosi is inside the painting and sneezes the offensive word, "s***", was the first take. So Beaudine left it in the film. The plot this time: Jack (Rick Vallin) is going to marry Betty (Ava Gardner) and they have bought a huge house two miles out in the country from the subway. Later, the agent tells him, the house next door is haunted. Mugg's (Leo Gorcey) gets word that the Katzman's mob (an in-joke to producer, Stan Katzman) will crash the wedding. Bela Lugosi as "Emil" is in town. He doesn't want Jack to have that house on Elm Street. Even Emil's assistant tells him the house next door is haunted. The assistant gives him some cash and a business card to call to close the deal. Of course, he will not. Later, the boys find the card on the floor. The boys decide to decorate Jack's new house , but they go by the number on the card and go to the haunted house instead. They don't know the mistake they made. Watch the fun begin with the boys and Bela Lugosi. This is Bobby Jordan's last appearance with the East Side Kids until BOWERY CHAMPS (1944). Then re-joined them for the Bowery Boys films. The next films in the series: Mr. Muggs Steps Out (1943), MILLION DOLLAR KID (1944).

The East Side Kids/Dead End Kids/Bowery Boys did it again. All your favorite guys are back again for some more fun. If you like Abbott & Costello...The Three Stooges....or The Little Rascals/Our Gang then your going to like these guys. Its fun for the whole family, good viewing you can trust with the kids. Add Bela Lugosi and a little old time spooky fun. Its good to finally see an almost forgotten piece of film history restored thanks to our friend Loyd Kaufman at Troma Studios.

HASH(0xa1779e64) out of 5 stars The East Side Kids Meet Bela Lugosi, Again. Sept. 13 2000
By Robert S. Clay Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Don't be fooled by the title. Ghosts have nothing to do with this movie. This is another encounter of our hapless heroes with the dark master of the poverty row horror film. This time the East Side Kids find Bela and his gang of Nazi spies occupying a local "haunted" house. These little low budget comedies don't pretend to be any more than they are. This film has the added attraction of a very young Ava Gardner in the unlikely role of Huntz Hall's sister. Bela Lugosi had become a low-budget standby at this point in his career. The East Side Kids, if not lovable, are tolerable in small doses. Due to a misunderstanding that is worthy of the Three Stooges, the boys mistake the deserted house for a honeymoon cottage that needs a good cleaning and decorating. The spooky manse has secret panels, revolving bookcases, paintings with moving eyes, and mysterious people creeping around. The mild thrills and chills are suitable for family viewing. There are a few low brow chuckles, but The East Side Kids and Bela Lugosi had better luck with the earlier "Spooks Run Wild," reviewed elsewhere in Amazon.com. Adjust your expectations accordingly. ;-)

Watch the fun begin with the boys and Bela Lugosi. This is Bobby Jordan's last appearance as part of the East Side Kids until BOWERY CHAMPS (1944). In BOWERY CHAMPS he appears as himself in a funny running gag. Then re-joined them for 8 Bowery Boys films.
The next films in the series: Mr. Muggs Steps Out (1943), MILLION DOLLAR KID (1944).
HASH(0xa177d414) out of 5 stars ---Ghosts on the Loose--- Nov. 19 2012
By James W. Milburn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
-----I purchased "Ghosts on the Loose" because it was a early movie of Ava Gardner; one of the first movies in which she got screen credit--her charaacter actually had a name, instead of just being a "Car Hop." She was good in it. The movie is enjoyable as a low-brow comedy. It was fun seeing the movie after reading about it in Ava Gardner's frank and interesting autobiography. It was a one-take-production deal. An actor stumbled that was not in the script--they used the shot anyway. Actually, I thought the stumble improved the movie <grin>. It was a funny movie; Ava Gardner did her part to make it so. Her autobiography talks about what a kick she got out of seeing her name on the marque showing the movie, the first time she had seen it there. Even if you do not care about Ava Gardner, the movie has lots of brilliant slap-stick comedy. It is worth the price of the DVD. If I remember correctly, the "East Side Kids" is another name for the "Bowery Boys / Dead End Kids." It may be slap-tick comedy, but it is brilliant slap-stick comedy, made by experts in that field. Watch it; be prepared to laugh a lot. ---Jim

HASH(0xa177d8b8) out of 5 stars Monogram Mediocrity on the Loose March 30 2013
By Scott T. Rivers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Lackluster follow-up to "Spooks Run Wild" wastes Bela Lugosi's formidable screen presence and offers few laughs. A mostly dull East Side Kids entry, "Ghosts on the Loose" (1943) has the added attraction of a young Ava Gardner. Directed in slapdash fashion by William "One Shot" Beaudine. Like the other Lugosi Monograms, this Roan Group DVD provides the best print quality.
