Last of the musical shorts
11 November 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

The last (thank you, oh please thank you) of the MGM musical Our Gang shorts. The musical shorts have always been short on plot an big on song and dance. This one doesn't have any plot its just song and dance so if you like this sort of thing you're going to love it. If you don't you're going to be like me and want to climb the walls. Actually the nominal plot is simply that the kids are saluting the men and women in uniform and we watch as a stage show is put on the radio. It makes no sense but when has the mere thought of people bursting into song ever made sense? I was never a fan of these shorts and I can't say I'm sad they stopped producing them. If you liked them go right a head and see this cause you're going to eat it up.
