Dusty Fun
20 March 2007 | by (Carteret, NJ) – See all my reviews

John Stanley's Creature Feature Film Guide calls this film "dusty fun" and I have to agree wholeheartedly. The formula and gags are quite dated but still retain a charm that lends so much to the enjoyment. I don't think I've met anyone who has a negative opinion of this film. I first saw it back in the early 80's on PBS's Matinée at the Bijou. It was cut pretty severely, about 10 or 15 minutes, to fit the time schedule, but lost nothing of it's story or characterizations. I loved it from the start. What a blessing to find it intact from Creepy Classics back in 95, and now from Alpha on DVD. A great cast of character actors ranging from "Dorothy's uncle" to "that crabby guy who ran the orphanage in the little Rascals.....now Spanky be reasonable!" A movie like this can't be made these days, and I imagine a great deal of the population would pass this right by were any station to show it. This is a real forgotten gem that should be watched if the occasion arises. BTW I don't think Hedda Hopper is Jasper's daughter. She always refers to him by his name and doesn't call him father. Also, at one point she says of Jasper's "daughter" "she doesn't look much like her mother does she?" I believe she may be a cousin or perhaps his sister.
