Wow, This Is Great!
9 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This review is for people who grew up with the Little Rascals (Our Gang). I grew up watching the talkies only, though I knew there were silent films which featured Farine, Joe, Mickey and Mary when they were kids (in the talkies, you saw them a few times grown up). This short is all sight gags in the best tradition of the time: The gang goes into a hotel for the well to do to "save" Mickey and mayhem ensues. There is little need for titles, though they are here. Its just great to watch these fairly gifted young actors make you laugh.While I love some of the talkies, this little film captures the essence of the concept, that it is a group of friends who are looking to help another friend. Also, it is not race specific, everyone is the same in this film, black and white. These days, it almost appears as if they have characters of various ethnicities in TV and film so as to be "politically correct". This film was way before that wave (by decades!)and none of the acting is forced. Bravo, Hal Roach, who was way ahead of his time. TCM just ran 24 hours of Our Gang, so if they show it again, Little Rascals fans of all ages should watch this. It was fun, funny and a true delight!
