Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Smugglers' Cover was Number Eleven in Monogram's moneymaking "Bowery Boys" series. Terence Aloysius "Slip" Mahoney (Leo Gorcey) receives notice that he's inherited a mansion. Actually, the real owner is another Terence Aloysius Mahoney (Paul Harvey), who is less than delighted when Slip, Sach (Huntz Hall) and the other Bowery Boys show up to take possession. But before a battle over ownership can get under way, the boys must deal with Martin Kosleck, who runs a smuggling operation from a subterranean tunnel beneath the mansion. Also showing up is the "intelligent" Bowery Boy Gabe Moreno (Gabriel Dell), arm in arm with his new war bride (Jacqueline Dalya)--who never again appears in the series. Though weighed down by an inappropriate musical score, Smugglers' Cove is an agreeable mixture of laughs and shivers.
