Jackie throws his schoolbook out the window in disgust, but then climbs outside to retrieve it. Finding himself locked out, he tries various means of getting back inside without his parents finding out. When his parents mistake his noises for a burglar, a local policeman is called, but he seems incompetent to catch either the phony burglar or the real one who has shown up in the meantime. —Jim Beaver <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Farina steals the show
This Our Gang short follows Jackie Cooper as he ends up locked out of his home. Throughout the night he is mistaken by the neighborhood and other Our Gang kids for a burglar and a ghost. Not one of the funniest Our Gang films. The character of Kennedy the cop becomes very annoying by the end. However, the film does show off the fine comic skills of Farina, who seems to be an often forgotten rascal.
