Yet another Our Gang revue
11 November 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

I don't care if you call me patriotic this film is the pits.

Ten minute song and dance film has the kids doing their part by putting on a show for the soldiers.

Time waster of a film is only worth bothering with for anyone who needs to have a musical constantly playing in their life. All other need not bother.

Yea this is another one of those review films that MGM put out on a regular time table. I don't know that anyone really would have liked them since the music and performances aren't that good. I'm guessing the main actors didn't like them since they seem to be walking through this nonsense.

Unless you're a huge fan of forgettable musicals take a pass.
