Many of the "Our Gang" kids are in their secret clubhouse - so secret that some wannabe members have troubles trying to find the tunnel entrance - planning their next game, which will be a Wild West shootout. They, as historical figures such as Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett, figuratively plan go to Arizona clandestinely through China and Japan, as Arizona is where they know most Indians to be, Indians who they plan to shoot. They run into some obstacles in playing the game, including objections from parents, and as such they decide to postpone it until the wee hours of the next morning and play it in the streets of the neighborhood. As it begins to rain during the middle of their shootout that morning, they decide to take refuge in a neighborhood house. What they are unaware of is that the house belongs to inventor W.R. Jones, who rigged it to be a "magnetic house", a demonstration for a possible amusement park attraction. Not knowing about the house's rigged contraptions leads to a ... Written by Huggo

Fun Our Gang Short

Shootin' Injuns (1925)

*** (out of 4)

If you can overlook all the politically incorrect "comedy" then you should find yourself enjoying this Our Gang short. The kids are in their clubhouse pretending to be various "legends" of the West and they all talk about how great it would be to kill Indians. When their parents find out the kids decide to runaway but they only make it to a house down the street as they find themselves inside and it appears to be haunted. This isn't the greatest short in the world but I think it has enough charm and laughs to make it worth viewing. I've said a couple times that I felt this was a fairly weak series but there are some gems to be found and this here is one of them. I'm sure many people won't be able to be entertained by this thing due to the politically incorrect nature but I always say it's important to remember when these films were made. With that said, the first half offers up some funny gags including poor Farina not being able to find out where the new clubhouse is. The film really comes to life during the second half once the kids enter the house, which they think is haunted but it's actually just rigged for an amusement park. Here is where we get all sorts of wonderful gags including a sequence where Farina tries to runaway from a skeleton but can't move as well as another one where poor Joe keeps going through a trick door. The film also features some trick shots where various skeletons come to life and the effect works pretty good. This short certainly has a lot of imagination in it, which is something other films in the series could have used.
