Not terrible, not great, but highly interesting shooting locations
9 September 2015 | by pithecanthropus-65016See all my reviews

This is an early silent Our Gang comedy whose cast will likely be entirely unfamiliar to the generation that remembers watching Spanky, Darla, and Alfalfa on after school TV. It isn't one of the best Rascal films out there.

On the other hand, this film is absolutely fascinating for both historical railroad enthusiasts and Los Angeles history buffs. There are numerous sequences showing heavy steam locomotives and Pacific Electric (the old Red Car system) rolling stock. There is a brief shot of the Palms P.E./S.P. station, about 100 yards west of the new Palms LACMTA Metro station.

Other segments are centered on or near the intersection of Motor Avenue and National Boulevard, where a good deal of period architecture still exists. The 1915 building on the SE corner of Motor and National figures prominently in a scene near the end.
