A later manifestation of an impish boy.
1 April 2003 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

This is the third and final cinematic appearance of a character based upon a humourous series of newspaper tales written by George W. Peck in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (Jackie Coogan and Jackie Cooper portrayed him in the first two films) with this Depression era RKO entry starring Tommy Kelly in an often silly but always briskly moving work offering, along with expected slapstick, some realistic dialogue, good direction from dependable Edward F. Cline, seamless ad libbing by beautiful Benita Hume, and other nice turns from William Demarest and Grant Mitchell.
