The opening credits of three Hal Roach "Little Rascals" shorts were verbally spoken by identical twin sisters, instead of being printed on screen. The duo verbally verbally introduced Teacher's Pet (1930) School's Out (1930) and Love Business (1931), the names of the producer(s), the director(s) and other leading staff member names. Then they concluded speaking the title of the short. Then they did a light bow and they spoke in unison, to the audience, saying "We thank you". See more »
This Hal Roach comedy short, Love Business, is the one hundred fourth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the sixteenth talkie. Jackie is so in love with Miss Crabtree, he always looks at her picture and says, "I love you" constantly to the consternation of Wheezer who's always hugged and kissed by him when they're sleeping together! Now she's a border at his house. Chubby is also crushing on her heavily and when he finds out, comes to the house later that day in order to court her! I'll stop there and just say this was the funniest of the Jackie/Miss Crabtree trilogy in the series with great punchlines provided by Wheezer, Stymie, Mary Ann, and Dorothy. And June Marlowe is, as always, utterly charming as the pretty teacher. So on that note, Love Business is highly recommended.
