Corky of Gasoline Alley (1951) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Scotty Beckett, Jimmy Lydon, Don Beddoe, Gordon Jones, Patti Brady, Susan Morrow

Directed by Edward Bernds



Print: black/white

Runtime: 80 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



Corky of Gasoline Alley was the second and last Columbia "B"-picture inspired by Frank King's popular comic strip Gasoline Alley. As in the first film, the emphasis is on young gas jockey Corky (Scotty Beckett), who must put up with Elwood Martin (Gordon Jones), the shiftless cousin of Corky's wife Hope (Susan Morrow). One of Elwood's get-rich-quick schemes involves gasoline pills, which all but destroy the service station managed by Walt Wallet (Don Beddoe) and his foster son Skeezix (Jimmy Lydon). When threatened with eviction, Elwood feigns a back injury, forcing everyone to wait on him hand-and-foot until his ruse is discovered. Director Edward Bernds handles his material in the slapsticky manner of his Columbia 2-reelers, which pays off in belly laughs even though this approach isn't altogether faithful to the spirit of the original comic strip.
