July Days (1923)

** (out of 4)

Weaker Our Gang short takes place during your typical summer day as the kids are messing around. The gang decides to start picking on a new kid in town until his sister Mary stands up for him. At first sight Mickey falls in love with her and tries to win her heart. I'll admit that at times I do wonder what made this series so popular that it would last for nearly twenty-years with countless actors stepping into various roles. I'm sure kids ate this stuff up back in the day but this one here is without question one of the weakest from the silent era. I think the biggest problem is the lack of any real ideas because there's really nothing too clever here. The first half has the kids pretty much just standing around not doing too much. Mickey gets a scooter from Mr. Anderson and Jackie eventually tries to steal it from him. They fight. The kids pick on the new kid and they fight. Neither thing is very funny. The second half picks up some as we get a few cute scenes including Mickey questioning his sister's boyfriend on how to pick up women. The "date" that Mickey and Mary goes on has a few cute moments including an incident with his pants but the twenty-minute running time really drags along and there simply aren't enough laughs to keep it moving.
