The last and one of the best
15 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, this is the last silent Our Gang/Little rascals film, and it's also one of the best! Here, the kids are upset because their parents want them to do household chores on their day off from school. They gather together in a gripe session when a heater salesman dressed as the devil to advertise his wares overhears this. He drops a smoke bomb and jumps around to scare the kids into performing their chores. What happens? I'll let you see for yourself.

This film is fall down on the floor funny. Evey adult with a bit of kid in them could identify with the fun the actor playing the devil has as he hams it up to scare the kids. There is a lot of really natural humor in the film too. One early scene has Jean and Mary's mother serving the bratty kids spinach while she has a headache. The kids express their disgust by throwing the spinach in the trash can while their mother steps out. Simple stuff, but so real that it's a hoot. This natural comedy mixes well with the fake devil's antics and as a whole, sends the Gang's career in silent movies out with a bang. A bit hard to find, but well worth it!
