Storyline

Hal Roach, who no longer owned the rights to his "Our Gang" (aka The Little Rascals") creation, decided to "create" a similar gang of kids, to be known as "Curley and his Gang", and star them in feature-length films shot in Cinecolor. This film is the first effort, and is virtually a remake, with longer running time, of the 1930 "Our Gang" short, "Teacher's Pet." The kids are fretting because their favorite teacher has gotten married and departed town, and they fear her replacement will be not to their liking. When Curley mistakes the aunt of the new replacement as being the new teacher, he and the rest of the kids make plans to discourage her staying. Mortification sets in when the new teacher turns out to be sweet, young and pretty. Jackie Cooper and June Marlowe had the smitten kid/teacher roles in the original. Robert F. McGowan, who directed and wrote the original short, gets story credit here, and was also the Associate Producer. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

An all-time personal favourite
29 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

A delightful film that I first saw as a teenager in the 1950s and was able to identify with very closely. Frances Rafferty's portrayal of the new teacher did much to bring the film to life - I had always wished for a teacher like her. It was great to see the reaction of her charges when she turned out to be not quite what they had expected. One of my all-time favourite films for pure entertainment. Not deep but well acted, interesting, and a good treatment of a juvenile subject.
