Going to Press was one of the rare M-G-M entries of the Our Gang series that didn't teach a lesson
31 January 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This M-G-M comedy short, Going to Press, is the two hundred fifth entry in the "Our Gang" series and the one hundred seventeenth talkie. Spanky and the gang are running the newspaper the Greenpoint Flash when they stumble into a story of the mysterious Gas House Gang. One of the paper's supporters is Frank (Darryl Hickman) but he's someone who's not what he seems...This marked the second appearance of Juanita Quigley as Sally from The New Pupil. Both she and Hickman are credited in the opening credits indicating they were guest stars in the series. This was a refreshingly amusing entry without the moralizing that marred previous eps. So on that note, Going to Press is recommended. P.S. Both Ms. Quigley and Hickman are both still living as of this writing. Ms. Quigley joined a convent as an adult then went back to a normal life with a husband who had previously studied for priesthood. They're both retired. Hickman had previously acted in John Ford's The Grapes of Wrath and would go on acting growing up including a guest shot as actual younger brother Dwayne's older sibling on "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" on TV. His last acting roles were on "The Nanny". He's also worked as a producer and writer.
