I have nothing against Mary Pickford but a 32 year old woman playing a 12 year old is just stupid.
There's a fight scene in which kids are throwing bricks at each other and it's considered funny---and it goes on for 15 minutes
Strange how none of the kids are even remotely hurt
The title cards contain plenty of racial and ethnic slurs
For a "family" film the fights were WAY too violent (loved it when Pickford was punching it out with a little boy!) and the humor was just stupid
Seriously, 40 minutes in I gave up and turned it off. The slurs, racism and little kids throwing bricks at each other got to me. Also there was no plot that I could see. The only thing worth seeing in this film was William Haines who was a top leading man in the silent era.
Just painful. Avoid.
