Summary
"Remastered, uncut and beautifully restored, now you can see The Little Rascals like never before! With restorations so glorious, it will be like watching these iconic shorts for the first time! Hal Roach's Our Gang series is one of the longest running and most prolific in the field of short subjects with 220 one- and two-reel comedies released between 1922 and 1944. The secret to the longevity of the series, as well as its appeal to generations long after its conclusion, is mainly due to Roach's choice to cast kids who came across as "natural" on the screen--scruffy underdogs that moviegoers could identify with or wish they could be--not glossy "showbiz professionals". After producing 88 silent Our Gang shorts, Roach transitioned to sound releasing 80 "talkies" in the series starting with Small Talk in 1929. It took time to fine-tune the adjustment from silent to sound, but soon the studio began firing on all cylinders producing classics like Shivering Shakespeare and The First Seven Years (both 1930). The Little Rascals - The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 1 contains the first 11 Our Gang sound shorts produced by Roach at the dawn of the "talkie era": Small Talk to A Tough Winter--with each short newly scanned and restored from original Hal Roach 35mm film elements."-- Container
