* The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 4 (ClassicFlix)
$39.99 SRP Blu-ray
—–Remastered, uncut and beautifully restored, now you can see The Little Rascals like never before! With restorations so glorious, it will be like watching these iconic shorts for the first time! With the introduction of George “Spanky” McFarland to the troupe in 1932, the “Our Gang” comedies soon embarked on one of the series’ most prolific periods of mirth making. Two years later, Hal Roach was inspired to team Spanky with a loyal sidekick: precocious child actor Scotty Beckett, whose delightful comic support of “Spank” premiered in one of Our Gang’s funniest and most beloved two-reelers, Hi, Neighbor! (1934). Spanky and Scotty often functioned as a Greek chorus to the “bigger” kids in classic outings like The First Roundup, Honky-Donkey and For Pete’s Sake (all 1934). They also displayed their broad comic range and chemistry by imitating the antics of Roach’s biggest stars, Laurel and Hardy, as in Mike Fright (1934) where Scotty’s guileless “Maybe we ain’t us” earns him a withering Hardy-like stare from his pal. The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 4 contains the next 12 Our Gang sound shorts produced by Roach in the “talkie era”: The Kid from Borneo (1932) to Shrimps for a Day (1934) – with each short newly scanned and restored from original Hal Roach 35mm film elements. A must-have for any true Our Gang fan, Volume 4 features the talents of George “Spanky” McFarland, Dickie Moore, Wally Albright, Bobby “Wheezer” Hutchins, Dorothy DeBorba, Matthew “Stymie” Beard, Tommy Bond, Billie “Buckwheat” Thomas, and, of course, Scotty Beckett. SHORTS: 1933: The Kid from Borneo; Mush and Milk; Bedtime Worries; Wild Poses; 1934: Hi, Neighbor; For Pete’s Sake; The First Round-Up; Honky-Donkey; Mike Fright; Washee Ironee; Mama’s Little Pirate; Shrimps for a Day.
