The Big Show was another amusing Our Gang short
20 September 2014 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, The Big Show, is the seventh in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. It's also notable as the debut of two more important members of the gang: chubby Joe Cobb and new leading lady Mary Kornman. The gang can't afford the county fair that's currently playing in town so they look through the peepholes at the gate but a cop shoos them away. They eventually have their own fair with various pets disguised as the wild animals. But the real attraction is a "movie" starring the big stars of the time impersonated by the gang. Among those imitated: Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Douglas Fairbanks, and William S. Hart. I'll stop there and just say this was quite amusing if not completely hilarious. It probably helps if you've seen the films reenacted by the gang. So that's a recommendation of The Big Show.
