Did You Know?


The story involves the Rascals performing in a make-believe movie theater where they imitate Charles Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Douglas Fairbanks, William S. Hart, Uncle Tom and the security guard character played by 'Gilbert, Dick'. The Chaplin imitation includes a gag repeated from Shoulder Arms (1918) wherein The Little Tramp disguises himself as a tree. The Fairbanks imitation (courtesy of Mickey Daniels) specifically refers to The Three Musketeers (1921). The Lloyd imitation borrows from Grandma's Boy (1922). See more »

This was the seventh in the silent 'Our Gang' series produced by Hal Roach.

That's it! I've had enough of these silent shorts. 'The Little Rascals' only does it for me with sound. Without sound it is like dry land swimming.
