NEW DVD RELEASE: The Our Gang Collection Volume Four!

PostSun Mar 03, 2013 5:21 pm

Hello everyone!

Here, by popular demand, is a great new volume of Our Gang silents from http://www.reelclassicdvd.com!

THE OUR GANG COLLECTION - Volume 4

Five of the Gang's Greatest and Funniest Silents!

Image
FIRE FIGHTERS (1922) The earliest surviving Our Gang film. After discovering the local bootlegger's still, the gang decide to incorporate it into their new fire truck. Jackie is department chief because he was given a fireman's helmet in exchange for washing his face. All goes well until the gang try to extinguish a fire with high-octane hooch!

Image
THE CHAMPEEN (1923) Sammy must raise a dollar to pay for the apples he snitched from the local grocer. To do this, he arranges a boxing match between long-time enemies Tuffy and Mickey. To keep them motivated, he tells each fighter that he's sure to win because the other has agreed to "lay down" in the second round! Re-made in 1929 as the early talkie, "Boxing Gloves".

Image
LODGE NIGHT (1923) In order to attend an important meeting of their secret lodge, the Cluck Cluck Klams, the gang must devise clever means of escaping their evening chores. When a couple of crooks interrupt Joe's initiation, the gang find themselves in a high-speed chase with the police!

Image
SUNDAY CALM (1923) The gang and their parents embark on a nice Sunday picnic. All is calm and serene if you don't count the broken wagon wheel, the missing kids, the runaway horse, the pig, the bear or the thunder storm!

Image
UNCLE TOM'S UNCLE (1926) The gang stage a hilarious production of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" in Mickey's barn with Joe in the lead role. Things get difficult because Joe's mother continually interrupts the show to make him clean up the back yard. Soon a group of rowdies arrive and try to stop the show with fireworks and rotten vegetables while a goat (full of gunpowder) sends the audience and cast running for the hills!

Original music scores composed and performed by Ben Model!

Thank you for taking a look.

I purchased Volume 4 and am very pleased with the contents. These are the best quality publicly available versions of these films currently on DVD. The soundtracks are pleasant and fitting and "Sunday Calm" is a nice rarity as well. As a fan that has seen a lot of poor quality versions of these films, I highly recommend this disc.
