When the Wind Blows (1930)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Our Gang short has Jackie getting locked out of his room so he walks around the neighborhood trying to find a place to sleep. The only problem is that everyone mistakes him for a burglar. This is an above average short for this period in the series and most of the film's charm comes from the performance of Cooper who really stands out among all the gang here. Wheezer and Chubby have a couple good moments but even these two don't come close to Cooper. I actually thought Charles McAvoy stole the film as Cooper's father, the one who spanks him and gets this whole mess started. McAvoy's comic timing hits all the right marks especially the scene where he pulls out a gun thinking the burglar is breaking into his home. Edgar Kennedy also gets a few funny sequences as the dimwitted cop who can't keep up with the whole neighborhood calling him.
