Quotes

Emerson Treacy, Spanky's father: [frustrated with Spanky's refusal to have his picture 'took', his Dad tries to get his ditzy wife to be quiet] Suppose you go over there, and count your nickels and dimes or somethin'. Huh?
Gay Treacy, Spanky's mother: Sure.
Emerson Treacy, Spanky's father: [to Spanky] Now look, now don't you move.
Emerson Treacy, Spanky's father: [he joins his wife on the sidelines] Hey, wha' you doin'?
Gay Treacy, Spanky's mother: Counting my money, like you told me to. I've got two nickels, and five dimes, but no cents.
Emerson Treacy, Spanky's father: [recognizing her unintentional pun] Right.

Photographing the Photographer
3 March 2007 | by tedgSee all my reviews

These were produced in bulk. Hal Roach's Filmography must be the largest of anyone. But even in these, where the thinnest of ideas was overblown to fill the time, you can see some ordinary folding.

The business with the gang was all about mugging. And Spanky was the star, at least in the early ones because he was the best at facial expressions.

So here's the setup: we see a recording of someone trying to record Spanky. The success of the recording we see depends on the failure of the photographer.

Ted's Evaluation -- 1 of 3: You can find something better to do with this part of your life.
