| Gettin' Mushy With The Little Rascals
An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Jackie & Chubby have LOVE BUSINESS on their mind: they both are infatuated with their teacher, Miss Crabtree. When they each try to declare their passion on the same evening, things get a bit complicated...

A very funny little film. Highlights: Chubby & Dorothy's dialogue; eating the moth ball soup. The inimitable Stymie also has some choice moments. That's June Marlowe as pretty Miss Crabtree.

This is the film that provides the famous shot of Chubby kissing `Garbo'. Sharp-eyed movie mavens will recognize Charley Chase & Thelma Todd in the large movie poster behind Chubby.

Goofs

Chubby gives Miss Crabtree a candy heart, which she holds between her thumb and fingers. In the insert closeup showing the inscription on the heart - "How About a Kiss?" - the candy is in the palm of her hand. Then, when Miss Crabtree and Chubby are seen again, she's holding the heart between thumb and fingers, as before.


Crazy Credits

The Opening Credits of three Hal Roach "Little Rascal" shorts, that are two-reel film shorts are verbally introduced by identical twin sisters, Betty Mae Crane & Beverly Crane, instead of being printed on screen. The duo verbally verbally introduced just three "Little Rascals" films. They are Teacher's Pet (1930) School's Out (1930) and Love Business (1931). During their rotating verbal introduction, one starts with the names of the director(s), name, then the other says the producer(s) & they keep rotating (back and forth) until they verbally mention all other all other leading staff member names, then the title of the short that is/was about to be played. After their co-introductions are completed, they conclude with a quick and light bow and they speak in unison, to the theatre audience, saying "We thank you". Then in two to three seconds, the short, they very politely and verbally introduced, with the title's top staff members' proper names are completed, the short begins.
