BRING HOME THE TURKEY (1927) Our Gang

Postby Richard M Roberts » Sun Mar 25, 2018 7:26 pm

Here's a rare Our Gang (it was only "rare" never "lost", I've had a print for years, and it wasn't even a one-of-a-kind), released by Pathe' January 21, 1927, directed by Robert McGowan, featuring the Gang with Tom Wilson and Louise Emmons:

This seems to be the most brutal of any Hal Roach comedy I've seen. Is Theodore Roberts "Warthead?"

Hi Tommy. No, doesn't look like Joe Roberts to me. Besides, I think he'd been dead for a few years when this film was made.

Neither of my namesakes are in BRING HOME THE TURKEY, Theodore Roberts only appeared in one comedy short and that's the 1929 Smitty comedy UNCLE'S VISIT, and that's his last film (it may have killed him).

The mean old man is Michael Visaroff, who also plays Mabel Normand's no-good father in THE NICKEL HOPPER.
