Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Peck's Bad Boy was an enjoyable Jackie Cooper vehicle
21 November 2014 | by tavmSee all my reviews

After leaving Our Gang in 1931, Jackie Cooper became a success in features, mainly at M-G-M-the studio that distributed the OG shorts during that time. This one was made outside of that lot-and it shows since the length is much shorter. Jackie is the title character though he's not bad initially since the movie begins with him and his pop enjoying fishing together, then segues to them at a father-and-son banquet with Jackie winning a plaque for his essay on why his dad's the greatest. Then things change when the father's late wife's sister and her son move in and they start running things. Things don't come to a boil until the end. There are plenty of heartwarming scenes in the beginning and also some nice comedy concerning some ants and nice suits and going to church. That's all I'll mention so on that note, I liked Peck's Bad Boy.
