Trivia

Director, Robert F. McGowan was injured when a camera platform collapsed and thus could not begin work on this film. Charley Chase substituted for him, but was then called away to New York to confer with Pathe executives, and the footage shot was tucked away until someone could finish it. McGowan salvaged Chase's scenes almost a year later and the film came out in 1924. See more »

The opening gag is worth the price of admission!
6 April 2001 | by (Culpeper, VA USA) – See all my reviews

This delightful short has all the elements that made the OUR GANG/LITTLE RASCALS so wonderful. It starts with a title card explaining that Joe Cobb's Mom and Dad are now in there 100th round of marriage… we cut to a shot of the wife pounding the husband with a rolling pin and as can only be pulled of in silents the sight-gag is a surprise and hilarious. As the story continues, we meet more delightful, cute kiddie characters just trying to be kids when opportunity for adventure comes along. The gang decides one morning to go on a swimming trip but they run across a stranger driving Mickey's goat cart and stop to get the whole story. It seems Mickey met a spoiled rich kid who never gets to play so they trade places ala THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER. The gang decides to go and visit Mickey now living it up at a ritzy downtown hotel. In the lobby we find a lady with a pet monkey, a fireworks salesman and the OUR GANG kids complete with goat cart! A very funny film that I hope to see again!
