I have an old 16mm print of this howler and it is quiet funny still today!
20 July 2004 | by (Culpeper, VA) – See all my reviews

The Gang puts on a `County Fair' including barnyard animals dressed/costumed as `wild' African creatures. The center piece of the fair has the Rascals paying tribute to their favorite film stars by staging a mock movie/live show for an appreciative audience. Spoofs include imitations by the kids of Charles Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks Sr., Harold Lloyd in recreations of their recent movies! Packed with squirrel driven shooting galleries, dog driven amusement thrill rides this Fair is more than fair! I hope these silent OUR GANG films get released on DVD soon as today's kids would love it and we need to keep alive the appreciate of gentle, old fashioned family fun!
