| Bring Home the Turkey was a late entry in the silent Our Gang comedies
This Hal Roach comedy, Bring Home the Turkey, is the fifty-seventh in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. The gang are being treated real cruel by the master of the orphanage, brandishing a bullwhip to them. But thanks to a black male living nearby, along with his three "kids" of Farina, Mango, and Pleurisy, providing them food and entertainment, they get by. But after being found out of having no legal recourse of caring for those three children, this Uncle Tom has them taken from him and sent to that very orphanage...This short was moderately amusing till the hilarious end though there is quite an entertaining Rube Goldberg-inspired sequence at the beginning. So that's a recommendation of Bring Home the Turkey. P.S. Mango is actually Allen "Farina" Hoskins' little sis, Jannie. Uncle Tom was played by actual Caucasian actor Tom Wilson who doesn't look offensive since he doesn't use white lips as is the usual characterization of such characters. He's probably best known as the cop who chases Charlie Chaplin and Jackie Coogan in The Kid.
