Our Gang Fractures Shakespeare
14 March 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short. When Spanky & the Gang put on a presentation of `Romyo and Jullet' out in the barn for the neighborhood kids, the audience is told they can `PAY AS YOU EXIT' if they like the show. But chaos ensues - especially after Alfalfa's onion-munching drives away leading lady Darla.

A fine little film, short and to the point. Spanky's strongman routine is cute and if you ever wondered how Buckwheat would play Juliet's Balcony Scene, this is the place to look. That's Fat Joe Cobb as the big kid in the audience.
