The Opening Credits of three Hal Roach "Little Rascal" shorts, that are two-reel film shorts are verbally introduced by identical twin sisters, Betty Mae Crane & Beverly Crane, instead of being printed on screen. The duo verbally verbally introduced just three "Little Rascals" films. They are Teacher's Pet (1930) School's Out (1930) and Love Business (1931). During their rotating verbal introduction, one starts with the names of the director(s), name, then the other says the producer(s) & they keep rotating (back and forth) until they verbally mention all other all other leading staff member names, then the title of the short that is/was about to be played. After their co-introductions are completed, they conclude with a quick and light bow and they speak in unison, to the theatre audience, saying "We thank you". Then in two to three seconds, the short, they very politely and verbally introduced, with the title's top staff members' proper names are completed, the short begins. 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.
