Crazy Credits

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 »

Did You Know??
16 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This wonderful Hal Roach short was originally (and timely) released to theaters by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer on Valentine's Day in 1931.

Was the last of three Our Gang comedies made using the 'Talking Title' girls announcing the opening credits.

'Love Business' was released the same day that 'Dracula' with Bela Lugosi was released to theaters by Universal Pictures in 1931.

May Wallace, who played Jackie, Mary and Wheezer's mom in this film was well into her fifties at the time it was made.

Jackie Cooper did only two more Our Gang films after this one before he went into features.

Farina was now ten years old, had been with the gang for nine of those ten years, and was to date the longest running player in the series. His place would soon be taken by the youngster who steals most of the scenes from him in 'Love Business'--little Stymie Beard.
