Romeo and Buckwheat
19 March 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

This Our Gang short uses the "let's put on a show" formula that they've used many times. This time the gang is staging their version of Romeo and Juliet with Alfalfa and Darla in the leads. However, midway through the show Darla gets fed up with Alfalfa's onion breathe (he eats onions to help his voice) and leaves. Unknown to Spanky, Alfalfa gets Buckwheat to fill in for Darla. It's Buckwheat's performance that makes this film fun. Buckwheat had amazing timing, he could say so much through subtle movements of his eyes and that big grin. When you look at him playing Juliet, you can see in his eyes he's really plotting to steal the spotlight, which he does. Plus, he has the best line in the short, "My Homeo!" By the way, that obnoxious member of the audience is Joe Cobb, who was an Our Gang member during the silent era.
