| Hearts Are Thumps was perhaps the real beginning of the Alfalfa-Darla romance in the Our Gang series
This Hal Roach comedy short, Hearts Are Thumps, is the one hundred fifty-third entry in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the sixty-fifth talkie. Seeing a bunch of child couples (of which one of them has Darwood "Waldo" Kaye paired with Shirley Coates in her first OG appearance) declare love for each other on Valentine's Day, Spanky, Alfalfa, and Buckwheat decide to form the He-Man Women Haters Club to stay out of that. But when Darla winks at Alfie, well, his heart's literally beating! Spanky vows revenge...This was quite a funny one-reel short helped by the familiar score of LeRoy Shield as well as some visual effects of Roy Seawright. Hilarious throughout. Interestingly, when adult Darla was interviewed by Leonard Maltin and Richard W. Bann for their book on Our Gang, she said she had more of a crush on Spanky who was very likable, than Alfalfa since he was arrogant off-screen and often was unruly, to boot! So on that note, Hearts Are Thumps is well worth a look.
