Mail and Female was another hilarious Our Gang short
29 December 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Mail and Female, is the one hundred sixty-first entry in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the seventy-third talkie. While Spanky elects Alfalfa the head of the He-Man Women Haters Club, Alf is outside writing a love letter to Darla. Buckwheat and Porky tells him he's elected but not of what. So when he arrives and finds out, well he now has to go to Darla's house to retrieve that note...This was yet another funny outing for the gang and wait till you see what Alfie does with his dilemma! So on that note, I highly recommend Mail and Female. P.S. This was the third and final short in the series directed by Fred Newmeyer. He had directed the first one called Our Gang back in 1922 but most of that was scrapped when it didn't test well and he was replaced by Robert F. McGowan. He's probably best known for many of the hit Harold Lloyd comedies. He'd only direct one more movie after this. He died on April 24, 1967.
