Boy Trouble has another early charming performance by Donald O'Connor
6 June 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is the second Donald O'Connor movie I'm reviewing in chronological order. He's one of the orphans (the other being Billy Lee) being adopted by Charles Ruggles, who's had to deal with bratty boys at his clothing store so he's not so tolerant at first. But his wife-Mary Boland-immediately loves them. I'll just stop there and just say there's some funny scenes with Ruggles and some of those bratty boys at the store but also some touching scenes especially concerning little Billy. O'Connor himself has a charismatic toughness about him as the near-teen one. So on that note, Boy Trouble is very much recommended for anyone with a taste for the obscure old movies. P.S. Besides Lee who was in Mike Fright, other players who were in Our Gang shorts include Sonny Bupp who was in Men in Fright and Zeffie Tilbury who was in Second Childhood. And, since I always like to cite anyone from my favorite movie-It's a Wonderful Life-in other films, here, it's Sarah Edwards-Mrs. Hatch there-as one of the neighbors here.
