Storyline

The schoolchildren lost their last teacher because she got married and quit her job. When the brother of their teacher Miss Crabtree comes to visit, the children mistake him for a suitor. The children tell abominable lies about Miss Crabtree to try to discourage the man. Meanwhile, one of the children is selling answers to the upcoming oral exam. Unfortunately for the students, the young entrepreneur used a book of minstrelsy and blackface as his source for the "answers". Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Crazy Credits

The Opening Credits of three Hal Roach "Little Rascal" films, that are two-reel short films, are verbally introduced by identical twin sisters, Betty Mae Crane & Beverly Crane, instead of being printed on screen. The duo verbally introduced just three "Little Rascals" films. They are Teacher's Pet (1930) School's Out (1930) and Love Business (1931). During their rotating verbal introduction, one starts with the director(s) name, then the other says the producer(s) name, and keep rotating (back and forth), until they verbally mention all other top leading staff member names, then the title of the short that is about to be played. After their co-introduction of the title, of the short, that is/was about to be played, they concluded with a quick and light bow and then spoke in unison, to the theatre audience members. They politely said "We thank you." Then, in two to three seconds, the short they very politely & verbally introduced, with the title's top staff members' proper names are completed, the short begins.

School's Out is a worthy follow-up to the previous Our Gang short, Teacher's Pet
18 October 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, School's Out, is the one hundred second in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the fourteenth talkie. After the printed title of "Our Gang Comedies-Hal Roach presents His Rascals in School's Out" and Beverly and Betty Mae Crane mention the production credits, we see Jackie passing a petition to the rest of the gang to continue school for the summer as he's afraid Miss Crabtree-who he has a massive crush on-will get married like the previous teacher and leave her job. I'll stop there and just say that while there might be some uncomfortable stereotypical humor-Farina mentions looking forward to some watermelon, his dad is in jail, and the cover of a Minstrel joke book is shown-this was a mostly harmless and very funny short and it's almost as good as its predecessor, Teacher's Pet. Once again, June Marlowe is very charming as Miss Crabtree. So on that note, School's Out is highly recommended.
