Wiggle Your Ears is a cute film from the later Our Gang silent period. It stars Harry Spear as the boy who can wiggle his ears, much to the delight of Mary Ann Jackson who is in love with him. However, when Harry spots pretty Jean Darling, he ditches Mary and refuses to wiggle her ears for her anymore since he has a new girl. Mary vows to get him back, going to such lengths as dressing up as a flapper to win his love.
Wiggle Your Ears is a great film with only a few comedic elements in it. It is not terribly funny; it is more sad than anything. One sympathizes with the sweet Mary Ann who takes so much abuse from Harry, one wonders why she even likes him. The style is unusual and artistic; the film is shot mostly in close up.
