Gorcey finds himself at a military school where Litel, who had promised the boy's dying father that he would take care of him, tries to make the Dead End kid a man. Halop attempts to help the unruly Gorcey make the transition, but he is thrown out of a second-story window by the thankless
brute. Gorcey comes around and proves himself a hero when he saves the life of Dell during a fire in the munitions storeroom. A forced and contrived Dead End outing, which bends the behavior patterns that had been established for these characters to fit its unlikely premise. Final feature film of
the "Dead End Kids" series.
