Flea For Your Life!
7 May 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A sort of all-star Our Gang comedy, in which all sorts of Roach's regulars and mini-stars -- except Stan Laurel -- appear. The sole gag here is that a bunch of fleas gets loose at the gorgeous Martha Sleeper's wedding, causing all sorts of consternation. See if you can spot Charley Chase.
