The evolution of the Bowery Boys has more twists and turns then a boxing match. In 1937, they started out as the Dead End Kids, a group of young hooligans from the slums of New York's East River, appearing in several films for Warner Brothers. A year later, Universal borrowed most of the group and cast them in films and serials, under the names of the Little Tough Guys and the Dead End Kids and the Little Tough Guys. In 1939, the group went to Monogram and became the East Side Kids. Then, in 1946, it happened. The East Side Kids were revamped and The Bowery Boys were born. In time, their films evolved into full comedies, transforming Leo Gorcey (Slip) and Huntz Hall (Sach) into a memorable comedy duo. To celebrate these long-running, popular film series, the "Bowery Boys Movie Poster Book, Volume 1" presents, for the first time, in chronological order, from various collections, color posters and poster art, including half-sheets, lobby cards, window cards or inserts, from nearly 50 of from the Dead End Kids, The Little Tough Guys, The East Side Kids and the Bowery Boys films.
