Youth on Parole was a nice melodrama featuring a couple of players who appeared in the Our Gang series in separate periods, individually
20 January 2015 | by tavmSee all my reviews

If you've read this under my username, you know I've been reviewing the Our Gang shorts in chronological order along with any other films outside the series featuring at least one member the same way in between. This time, however, I'm reviewing a film from a few years back of the current OG short I just wrote about featuring a former member since it also features an adult woman who played the mother of one of the current members at this point. I'm referring to Mary Kornman-the former member-and Peggy Shannon-who I just watched playing Mickey Gubitosi's mother for the second time in All About Hash. They both play characters related to the leading lady here, Marian Marsh-Mary playing her sister and Peggy playing her co-worker. Ms. Marsh plays one of two young adults being framed for a jewel robbery, the other being Gordon Oliver. There's also a nice supporting role for the Marx Brothers' dowager lady, Margaret Dumont, playing against type as a landlady for the slum apartment Ms. Marsh and Oliver reside in. For the most part, I liked this melodrama so on that note, that's a recommendation for Youth on Parole.
