Interesting to see young Rooney
23 September 2012 | by mountaingoat100See all my reviews

Wraparound footage was done in the 1940s featuring three women reminiscing about their times as Mickey McGuire's gang members. It was unclear to me if they were recalling actual memories, or the movies they were in, nut it matters mot. This frame is just a hook to show a few Our Gang style comedy shorts. In the first, Mickey sets up his own radio station. Next, he helps find a chicken thief, to get his black pal's uncle out of jail. Then, sets up a shoeshine stand to get many for a Milk drive. The best episode has the gang dressing up as wild animals only to encounter a real (or at least, a man in a suit) gorilla. The last concerns a trotting race against their snobbish rival, who is their deadly enemy in most of the stories. The films are simplistic fun bu interesting to see the great Rooney before he become the top movie star he was to become. Also, look for Billy Barty as his little brother. Barty went on to have a very long career, although limited by his being a midget. The Barty highlight is his impersonation of a chicken!
