The Our Gang put on their own production of "Romeo and Juliet", with some lines from "Hamlet" and a strong man act thrown in for good measure. Buckwheat saves the day by playing Juliet ... See full summary »

The gang packs up for a camping trip to Cherry Creek two miles from their home, but to them it is the wilderness. After night falls, the hooting owls and croaking frogs conjure up visions ... See full summary »
Matthew 'Stymie' Beard,
The Opening Credits of three Hal Roach "Little Rascal" shorts, that are two-reel film shorts are verbally introduced by identical twin sisters, Betty Mae Crane & Beverly Crane, instead of being printed on screen. The duo verbally verbally introduced just three "Little Rascals" films. They are Teacher's Pet (1930) School's Out (1930) and Love Business (1931). During their rotating verbal introduction, one starts with the names of the director(s), name, then the other says the producer(s) & they keep rotating (back and forth) until they verbally mention all other all other leading staff member names, then the title of the short that is/was about to be played. After their co-introductions are completed, they conclude with a quick and light bow and they speak in unison, to the theatre audience, saying "We thank you". Then in two to three seconds, the short, they very politely and verbally introduced, with the title's top staff members' proper names are completed, the short begins. See more »
This wonderful Hal Roach short was originally (and timely) released to theaters by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer on Valentine's Day in 1931.
Was the last of three Our Gang comedies made using the 'Talking Title' girls announcing the opening credits.
'Love Business' was released the same day that 'Dracula' with Bela Lugosi was released to theaters by Universal Pictures in 1931.
May Wallace, who played Jackie, Mary and Wheezer's mom in this film was well into her fifties at the time it was made.
Jackie Cooper did only two more Our Gang films after this one before he went into features.
Farina was now ten years old, had been with the gang for nine of those ten years, and was to date the longest running player in the series. His place would soon be taken by the youngster who steals most of the scenes from him in 'Love Business'--little Stymie Beard.
