This was one of the first four Our Gang comedies to be released in 1922. It's the amusing tale of Ernie Morrison, the pioneer black child star,and his white curly-haired pal Jackie Condon who learn that a rich girl (Peggy Cartwright, the original Our Gang cutie pie before Mary Kornman and Darla Hood) has been kidnapped. Way ahead of it's time for showing Morrison and Condon as an interracial comedy team without (minor dialect issues aside) much stereotyping of Morrison's character. But it's also funny and charming throughout. Excellent viewing after a hard day at work or school and fine for the whole family. Even people who don't usually like silent films should enjoy this.
