Mildly entertaining if rather unfunny flick from Our Gang has Mickey Daniels doing an impersonation of Sherlock Holmes and Joe Cobb being Watson as the two try to discover the whereabouts of a young rich kids who has gone missing. While trying to find the kid the gang must also try and avoid a dumb detective also working the case. The more of these Hal Roach/Our Gang shorts I watch the more amazed I am that I'm not laughing at many of them. For a 20-minute comedy they flow fairly well and there are usually some interesting visuals but I'm still not laughing. This entry in the series offers up a fairly entertaining story but once again we're left without many laughs. The first portion of the film deals with the "investigation" as the kids end up arresting the wrong person but this here turns out to be one of the highlights as our detective gets caught in a very interesting way. The second half deals with the kids getting on an airplane and it taking off leaving Farina on the wing. Obviously the kids weren't in any danger but the poor background footage doesn't help things.
