It is a premiere night at the Fox Carthay Circle theater, and the Our Gang show up to observe the festivities. But after the Gang causes a disruption, the police send them scurrying home. Not to worry--the Our Gang stage their own premiere night in the clubhouse barn. Written by

The gang travels to a big movie premiere where they see a famous actresses getting to put her feet in concrete so that future generations will be able to see it. The kids decide that they want to have their own premiere but first they need to make a movie. THE BIG PREMIERE pretty much re-works an earlier Our Gang picture and while there are a couple cute moments here you still have to consider this another disappointment for the MGM series. I think the film works best when the kids are at the real premiere and keep pestering a cop who doesn't have all the answers that they're wanting. This includes a cowboy star showing up at the premiere but without his horse. The second half of the picture has the kids inviting the neighborhood over so that they can see the movie and in order for there to be sound, the kids must stand behind the screen and speak the parts. Again, there are a couple funny moments here but the overall feel of the film is pretty weak as there's just never any real energy to pick things up. It's too bad because this material could have been handled much better.
