One of the better silent Our Gang comedies, this cute little short features the kids stumbling into a crook’s hideout. The villains try to scare the tykes away by faking a haunted house and hilarity ensues.
There is some unfortunate racial humor but for the most part, this is a fun short with clever title cards and charismatic performances from some of the young leads. Most enjoyable.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
The kids defeat the villains with well-aimed pottery and the baddies are hauled off to jail.

If it were a dessert it would be: Bloody Good Cheesecake. Sure, it’s all in the looks but it’s fun.

Got you DVD Kidnapped today. Took a lot of work to be able to buy this but ultimately I got via Amazon Australia who had it shipped a week ago from Amazon US. Pure luck but I paid more than if direct but glad to now have it. Hope to play it tonight.
Great! I have just finalized a deal that should make future releases considerably more affordable and convenient to obtain for Australia and Canada.
