Night 'n' Gales was aided immeasurably by Johnny Arthur for laughs in this Our Gang entry
28 December 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Night 'n' Gales, is the one hundred fifty-seventh entry in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the sixty-ninth talkie. At night, The Four Nitengales "entertain" the Hood family with their rendition of "Home, Sweet Home" endlessly. Darla and her mother seemed entertained but her father (Johnny Arthur) and little sibling Junior (Gary Jasgur in his first OG appearance) are definitely not! Eventually, Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, and Porky decide to go home but it's raining so instead, they're invited to stay to the consternation of the father! I'll stop there and just say this was another hilarious outing for the gang, added immensely in entertainment value by Johnny Arthur's performance, not surprising since he was as hilarious when previously portraying Spanky's father in Anniversary Trouble. Oh, and I loved the use of Nathaniel Shilkret's score of "Funny and Mysterious"-which I previously heard in Laurel & Hardy's Way Out West-here. So on that note, I highly recommend Night 'n' Gales.
