"He knocked over a hot mugg." --- "Knocked over a hot what?" --- "You know, turns a slippery gink over to the coppers."
ALPHA VIDEO is the dba of a Pennsylvania-based outfit called GOTHAM. They specialize in niche market material, mostly vintage programmers and public domain stuff. Quality of their unrestored movie transfers varies from fair to good, based on condition of film stock and source material (often old 16mm broadcast prints). The only extras provided are a catalog insert and DVD-accessible title list.

SMART ALECKS (1942) is an East Side Kids comedy with Leo Gorcey, Bobby Jordan, Huntz Hall, Gabe Dell, 'Sunshine Sammy' Morrison, Bobby Stone, David Gorcey and the latest gang member, Stanley 'Stash' Clements. Only in this series for three pictures, Clements later married Gloria Grahame (they divorced after three years). Their 1981 deaths were eleven days apart.

Villain of this minor film is 'Slapsie Maxie" Rosenbloom, a slightly punch drunk ex-prize fighter who here has the humorous name Butch Brocalli. Gale Storm as Jordan's sister is the main female character. Also with Walter Woolf King, Herbert Rawlinson, Joe Kirk (Lou Costello's pal) and Marie Windsor (in a bit role as a nurse). This former Miss Utah and Bette Davis stand-in was superb in films noir such as director Stanley Kubrick's [[ASIN:0792841395 THE KILLING]] (1956).

In "Smart Alecks," Danny (Jordan) cops a $200 reward for helping to put Butch Brocalli on ice. He intends to buy baseball uniforms for the fellas, but they think Danny's holding out on them, so they glom the loot and blow it on a jalopy. And now Brocalli has busted outta the slam and his first order of business is taking care of the kid who got him arrested...
