Spanky the Star!
20 April 2002 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

A somewhat atypical OUR GANG comedy. The focus is not on the interaction of the gang, but concerns itself with Franklin Pangborn's tribulations in taking a portrait photo of Spanky. Spanky gets to sock Pangborn frequently and hilariously. Look for a quick cameo by Laurel and Hardy.
