Stage Fright was another hilarious early Our Gang short, 21 September 2014
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

This Hal Roach comedy short, Stage Fright, is the seventeenth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. It's also the first one listed on this site that has yet to have a review of which I'm going to be the first. In this one, the kids are forced to do a play about ancient Rome. Anything that can go wrong does, from Joe nearly falling with the chair he's sitting on to a couple of guards and Jackie keeping on switching positions on stage, to a little girl trying to recite a poem at the wrong moments. Add in a cow and some firecrackers and there's no way this is going to go smoothly, to our enjoyment! Robert McGowan has done it again in bringing another hilarious short starring those mischievous kids! So on that note, I highly recommend Stage Fright.
