Kids of yesterday
26 January 2008 | by Petey-10See all my reviews

Our Gang was a team of rascals who lived in a world where adults were mere extras.It was Hal Roach who found these kids and made them famous.In this little silent treat Mickey (Mickey Daniels) and Jackie (Jackie Condon) feud over Mary (Mary Kornman).Sunshine Sammy (Ernest Morrison) decides to arrange a boxing match between these two.It's a huge riot all the way.The Champeen from 1923 is a direction of Robert F. McGowan.Producer Hal Roach was also writing it.Mr.Roach (1892-1992)was a genius.During his one hundred years on Earth he did a lot and with many, including Harold Lloyd and Laurel and Hardy.This silent short gives a very fine picture of that era.Nothing is the same today without those little rascals around.
