Barnum & Ringling, Inc. was another funny enough Our Gang comedy
2 October 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Barnum & Ringling, Inc., is the seventy-fourth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. The kids are residents of a posh hotel where they run freely around though not without some less-than-friendly encounters with the adult authority figures. In this one, they plan a circus inside the lobby with various animals dressed as some of the more wild ones seen in jungles. When they all scatter around, watch out! Quite funny especially when Oliver Hardy, who was already teaming with Stan Laurel in many shorts by this point though they had yet to star in their own official series, encounters one of those animals while taking a drink! So on that note, I highly recommend Barnum & Ringling, Inc. P.S. The DVD I saw this on had an option of playing it with commentary by one Richard Lewis Ward, author of the book "A History of the Hal Roach Studios". And the print I watched was a Blackhawk Films one with organ score by Gaylord Carter. Update: 10/3/14-I just now watched the version on YouTube with the (presumably) original music score and sound effects. The children's laughter, ladies' screams, and animal sounds add a little to the fun.
