School's Out (1930)

*** (out of 4)

Our Gang short plays out like a sequel to Teacher's Pet. When a man comes to the school asking about Miss Crabtree, the gang fears it's a man wanting to marry her and take her away. To try and make him change his mind they start telling lies about her but what they don't know is that this man is actually her brother. This is a pretty good short but it's certainly not as good as the previous film as there aren't as many laughs here. The highlight is a wonderful sequence where Miss Crabtree gives the class a history quiz but they keep giving dumb answers after buying them from a classmate. All of the group get some nice stuff with Jackie Cooper once again taking most of the good stuff. There is a rather off color remake made towards Farina that doesn't play too well today but overall this is a pleasant film. The joke about Lon Chaney and one of his famous movies is well done as well.
