Although the onscreen credits list Eddy Waller in the role of Griswold, the Call Bureau Cast Service lists Cliff Clark in that role. The Little Tough Guys were an offshoot of the original Dead End Kids as introduced in the 1937 Samuel Goldwyn film and the Sidney Kingsley play Dead End. Various members of the original group, which consisted of Huntz Hall, Leo Gorcey, Gabriel Dell, Billy Halop and Bernard Punsley went on to form a series of other groups. They starred as The Dead End Kids for Warners, as The Little Tough Guys for Universal, The East Side Kids and The Bowery Boys for Monogram.
