Clancy Street Boys
Clancy Street Boys (1943) is a low-budget comedy film starring Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Noah Beery, and Amelita Ward. It was directed by William Beaudine.
This is the 13th of 22 East Side Kids films produced at Hollywood's Monogram studio between 1940 and 1945. This series chronicles the misadventures of a gang of tough but well-meaning youths growing up in the impoverished Bowery on Manhattan's lower East Side. The stories range from gritty urban melodramas laced with comic relief to purely lighthearted comedies featuring slapstick sight gags.
Muggs (Leo Gorcey) is visited by his wealthy "Uncle" Pete from Texas. Since Muggs' late father had bragged that he and Muggs' mother had seven children, Muggs recruits six of his gang to pose as his siblings. Things get even more complicated when gangsters hatch a scheme to kidnap Pete and hold him for ransom.
The spanking scenes
The opening segment features Muggs trying to avoid the rest of his gang on his 18th birthday. Eventually they find each other and Muggs gets a vigorous birthday spanking — 18 whacks with a large wooden paddle (M/M). A rival gang then shows up and Muggs gets another 18 strokes via hand and paddle. A fight breaks out between the two gangs that is broken up by a police officer. The cop marches Muggs home while giving him yet another 18 whacks with his nightstick.
