    Was it "East Side Gang", or some such name? Frank

    I've never seen anyone wear a hat like that, except Smiley Burnette.

    The Dead End Kids according to Youtube. I didn't recognize the name, but I sure recognized the face in Nancy's video post.

    I never heard of him. That must have been before we had a TV.

    THAT'S where I remember him from, @Beatrice Taylor. I remember the Bowery Boys!

    @Don Alaska
    Leo's main sidekick, tall & skinny, is Huntz Hall, I believe (real name!).

    LEO GORCEY was the bossy brains of all three "Gang" movie series:

    "The Bowery Boys"
    "The Dead End Kids"
    "The East Side Kids"

    My favorite of his gang members was the tall, nice-looking, soft-spoken Bobby Jordan, who always wore his pants high.

    Leo Gorcey was like Moe Howard, the mean-acting leader of the the "Three Stooges".

    Anyone who doesn't remember Leo Gorcey has lived a sheltered life or is simply too young to be a Senior! :D
