Alfalfa's Double (1940)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Alfalfa is tired of being poor and pushed around so when he gets a chance to exchange lives with another kid who looks exactly like him he jumps at the opportunity. At first Alfalfa thinks it's going to be great being rich but he soon learns to appreciate his own life. If you're not a fan of Alfalfa then it's probably best to stay away from this film since Carl Switzer has two different roles here. I thought Switzer did a pretty good job with both roles and he gets the biggest laughs in the film when, as Alfalfa, he sees his double. The reaction to him seeing himself was just priceless and was certainly the biggest laugh in the picture. Another major plus is that he's given some fairly good things to do including a bit with some ice cream as well as another involving the rich kid eating soup. The supporting players really don't have anything to do outside a couple scenes so this baby here is all Alfalfa. Fans of the series should at least get a few laughs out of it and it's clearly better than the previous entry in the series.
