Million Dollar Kid

Million Dollar Kid is a 1944 American film directed by Wallace Fox starring the East Side Kids.


In the East Side Kids' clubhouse, Muggs McGinnis (Leo Gorcey) laments the epidemic of mugging that has been plaguing their streets. While waiting outside a store that afternoon, the boys witness a man being attacked in the alley and come to his defense, chasing away his assailants. In gratitude, the man, millionaire John Cortland (Herbert Heyes), hands Muggs his business card. When the cynical Muggs tosses the card in a garbage can, Glimpy McClosky (Huntz Hall) digs it out and finds the man's cash-laden wallet in the trash.
