Editorial Reviews

Silent-black and white-This is a collection of some of the funniest Our Gang silent shorts. Watch Farina and the little rascals get into crazy mischief! Included are 1-No Noise- Mickey is in the hospital because he had his tonsils removed. When the gang visits, he tries to think of a way to escape so he can avoid that awful tasting castor oil. 2- Sun Down Limited- Mickey and Joe dream of being real railroad engineers, so they build an entire operating train! 3-Buried Treasure-The rascals set out to find buried pirate treasure. But, they get more than they bargained for when they stumble onto a pirate movie set.4-The Old Spook House (aka.- Shootin' Injuns) The gang run away from home one evening so they can fight indians. They don't get very far, so they try to find refuge in an old house. The problem is, this old house has been converted into a scary fun house!5- Sunday Calm- What could be a better idea than taking the little rascals on a Sunday picnic? Turns out-almost anything!

Everything that can go wrong during a picnic does go wrong.
Randy E. Halford
While the TCM version was superior in picture quality, the one on this disc is acceptable, and it's nice to see a more complete version.
Smedley
Some of the characters did appear in some of the talkies, especially Farina.

I took a chance and bought this disc because it contained one silent short I did not have -- "Sunday Calm." I wasn't disappointed. Here's some info for those of you who might want to know exactly WHAT is on this disc:

First off -- this is a DVD-R disc, and it does not state that in the description. The shorts are not restored in any way, but there is no claim that they are. The case is bare bones -- no information about the shorts, just the titles. The disc contains a title menu. Audio is, surprisingly, 5.1-channel mono, with music soundtracks on each short. Now for the shorts:

"No Noise" -- Running time 24:35. Has the original Pathe title and inter-title cards. The version TCM ran in January 2011 lasted just short of 15 minutes and was missing most of the inter-titles. While the TCM version was superior in picture quality, the one on this disc is acceptable, and it's nice to see a more complete version.

"The Sun Down Limited" -- Running Time 19:58. This appears to be the same Exclusive Movie Studios home movie print available on many silent compilations (has the opening title card), although other prints I have on DVD clock in at at just over 25 minutes. I didn't do a side-by-side comparison to see if anything was cut in this print. Picture quality is pretty good.

"Buried Treasure" -- Running time 19:14 -- has the original Pathe title cards and inter-title cards. Another version I have is from a TV print that runs around 15 minutes and has no inter-titles and is missing a few scenes that are included in this one. The TCM short broadcast in January 2011 ran about 13:45 and was missing the same scenes and inter-titles.

In the beginning---1922---producer Hal Roach had the germ of an idea; create a series based on the (mis)adventures of kids--REAL kids--in a comedy format. Thus, "Our Gang" was born in the silent movie age. The original cast: Ernie "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison (the first black child actor to be under contract); freckle-faced all-American boy Mickey Daniels; Joe Cobb (the original "fat kid"); original "darling" Mary Kornmann (long before Darla Hood); cute but rambunctious Jackie Condon (who looked as if his hair was combed with an egg beater); and little Farina (who would remain with the series for a decade). I'm assuming that many of these silent treasures are either lost forever or in the hands of private collectors. So here's five of these early films:
"NO NOISE"--Mickey winds up in the hospital with appendicitis. The gang offers their support, but get quarantined instead. They lead the staff on a wild merry chase to round them up. Highlights are Farina moving in slow motion after being chloroformed; Ernie panicking when a skeleton becomes attached to him (a somewhat tiresome gag); and the gang becoming electrified by a device.
"SUNDOWN LTD."---The kids' fun with trains inspires them to create their own locomotive out of junked parts in the railyard. Highlights have Farina ducking safely under the passing train while his foot is stuck (it was reprised in the early talkie "Railroadin'"); and some gags involving the "mechanics" of their makeshift train.
"BURIED TREASURE"---Enthralled with stories of buried treasure, the kids head off to a remote island (via one of their floating contraptions), in which they run afoul of "savages" (it's really actors filming on location) and are scared away.

If you only know "The Little Rascals" from television with Alfalfa, Spanky,Porky, Darla and Buckwheat, then you don't really know them. In fact, they began 90 years ago in 1922 in the silent era produced by Hal Roach. What is gathered here in this wonderful collection are five silent shorts from "Our Gang" the true name of this wonderful troupe. We get to see how inventive these kids were as they all did things that kids do, playing with each other and building their own vehicles, fire trucks, trains and taxi cabs all animal powered.
Hal Roach and director Robert McGowan bring up the original gang line up; Jackie Condon, Joe Cobb, Mickey Daniels, Ernie Morrison, Mark Kornman, Allen Hoskins, Jay R. Smith, Johnny Downs and Jackie Davis. The shorts are hilarious and of course the kids are adorable stealing our hearts as they did with audiences 90 years ago. Jackie Condon was the only member to appear in all 66 silent Pathe shorts and continued with it when MGM took over until the end of the silent era in 1928 and then sound came in in 1929. This collection is a real treasure trove of Our Gang Gold as the title suggests. And now, these classic films have been preserved for everyone to enjoy. For adult film fans like your truly and your children today will love the gang and their antics.

Poor transfers from old Excel prints. Not recommended. Too bad the public is being denied good transfers of the silent Our Gangs. This is not the way to do it.
