Did You Know?


Bubbling Troubles (1940) was the very last "Our Gang" short, with actor, Tommy Bond. Bond was with the group twice. His first time span, he was an immediate member. His second 'time with the gang', he acted as a rival and was nicknamed "Butch", for acting as a rival. In reality he still was a friend, but acted as a rival. See more »

Duel Personalities may be the peak of entertainment in seeing the games of rivals for Darla's hand in the Our Gang series
13 January 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This M-G-M comedy short, Duel Personalities, is the one hundred seventy-eighth entry in the "Our Gang" series and the ninetieth talkie. The gang are on their way to see a performance of a hypnotist but are waiting for Alfalfa who's once again brushed off by Darla for Butch. As they watch the show, Alf volunteers to be tested by him but before he can be snapped back to normal, he confronts Butch and Darla and challenges his rival to a duel. Darla, naturally, is thrilled...Plenty more happens but I'll just now say this was perhaps the most funny of the M-G-M entries which will soon be in very short supply in laughs subsequently. This may also be the peak of the entertainment value of seeing Darla's rivals trying to one-up each other. Don't want to mention any more so on that note, Duel Personalities is well worth a look. P.S. This was the first time the name of the fictional town of Greenpoint was mentioned as Our Gang's residential place.
