Storyline

Jackie throws his schoolbook out the window in disgust, but then climbs outside to retrieve it. Finding himself locked out, he tries various means of getting back inside without his parents finding out. When his parents mistake his noises for a burglar, a local policeman is called, but he seems incompetent to catch either the phony burglar or the real one who has shown up in the meantime.

Trivia

Released in four versions with a different language spoken by the actors in each one: English, Spanish, French, and German. The new dialogue was not dubbed in; instead, each scene was shot four times, one take for each language. This process was helped with the aid of language tutors, blackboards placed out of camera range with the phonetic dialogue written on them, and the hiring of foreign actors for the incidental roles. This process was also used in the Little Rascals shorts The First Seven Years (1930) and A Tough Winter (1930). See more »

Gettin' Locked Out With The Little Rascals
20 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Strange things happen WHEN THE WIND BLOWS. After getting locked out of his house on a stormy night, nightshirted Jackie seeks solace at the homes of Farina, Chubby & Mary Ann. When a neighborhood prowler shows up, things get really hectic...

A funny little film, although the beating Jackie gets from his Dad seems a bit much. Farina's home life is shown in a stereotypical fashion, common for that era in Hollywood. Highlight: Mary Ann's flirtatious ways. That's Edgar Kennedy as the hapless cop on the beat.
