Love Business (1931)

*** (out of 4)

Our Gang short has Jackie's crush on Miss Crabtree (June Marlowe) growing and growing but things take a turn for the good when she rents a room in his parent's house. The good vibes quickly go away when he learns that Chubby plans on asking her to marry him. This is another winner in the early part of the series and once again a lot of its charm comes from Marlowe. While I wouldn't say she gives a good performance I do this she's awfully cute in her role and manages to be quite charming as the teacher all the kids have a crush on. There are many funny moments in the film including one around the dunner table where moth balls have fallen into the soup. Another funny scene, and the highlight, happens when Chubby comes calling with flowers and candy. Matthew 'Stymie' Beard steals the film in his few scenes.
