High Society (1924)

** (out of 4)

Mickey Daniels is living with his poor uncle but the two love their lives and don't mind not having money. Soon Mickey's rich aunt gets custody of him and this doesn't sit well with the gang who decides to pay the rich folks a visit and teach them some fun. The more Our Gang shorts I watch the more I'm starting to realize that they weren't the greatest thing Hal Roach ever produced. I am rather amazed at their popularity both back in the day as well as today but so far these early entries haven't been that good. This one here once again features a fast-paced story but very few laughs. I'd also question some of the humor and wonder why it was put into a kids film. Just take a look at the scene where Mickey is upset about his aunt spanking him. We then get a scene where she's really beating the fire out of him and shaking him extremely hard. I know this is a no-no today but was this scene really funny in 1924? Once the gang shows up at the rich house we get all sorts of trouble including Farina putting whiskey in the fish bowl, the kids putting liquid soap on the kitchen floor and of course the rich cousin who was picking on Mickey is in trouble.
