Here's a list of OUR GANG episodes I know for sure ('cause I own them) that were released by Blackhawk. The complete series has been dubbed and aired in Italy during the 70's, so we know those little 'rascals' so well here too.

I'm trying to collect all shorts issued by Blackhawk (super 8, silent and sound).

Gian-

I am also a very big fan of the Little Rascal / Our Gang shorts. I also have the ones you have, and others.

I believe, (and someone please correct me if I am wrong), that Blackhawk Films actually released ALL of the Hal Roach "Our Gangs", that were dated from 1929 to 1938. Of course, they also released some of the silent shorts (pre-1929) as well.

I don't believe Blackhawk ever released the full length Our Gang- "General Spanky". A few of the inferior M-G-M Our Gangs were released on super 8, but I'm not sure who released those, since I didn't partucularly care for those later shorts.

If anyone knows of titles from 1929 to 1938 that were NOT released, please list those.

James.

Hi James. And thanks a lot for your precious help. I was quite sure the whole series (silent shorts included) was released by Blackhawk.

Unfortunately I ignore if 'General Spanky' exists in super 8.

Can you tell me the other titles you own, please?
Just to be sure I could find them.

Well, I hope other fans will help us!
Greetings from Verona.

Hi Gian Luca,

I bounced your list against my own and these "new" ones fell out:

First Round Up (1934)
Hi, Neighbor! (1934)

These are both Blackhawk Sound 400 Footers. "Hi Neighbor!" is one of the more famous "Our Gangs". It's the one where the Gang cobbles together a "Fire Engine" to race against the fancy one owned by their new snobby rich-kid neighbor. "First Round Up" sends the Gang camping along with fleas, forgotten food and a thunderstorm.

I bought my first "Our Gang" ("Hook and Ladder") thinking it was "Hi, Neighbor!". I'm glad I made the mistake. I like it even better.

I have this one friend who always griped at my shows until that one time I showed a Rascals film. I haven’t had a complaint since! (Know your audience. I got my second griper with Bugs Bunny!)
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 28, 2009, 01:40 PM:
 
Steve, thanks a lot.
Well, my cat is normally my audience when I screen ah ah ah. She never says a word: it seems she likes all my movies!

At least now I know there are those episodes too, somewhere!

I love HOOK AND LADDER. I always go crazy when I see SPOOKY HOOKY and LITTLE SINNER. But I'm also in love with the phenomanal 1936 and 1938 FOLLIES. And I would sell my right hand to have FISHY TALES!

Hope to find soon more to add to my 'limited' collection.

One Blackhawk I know to exist because I missed it on E-bay one night is Wild Poses(1933). I kind of regret this one because there is an appearance by Laurel and Hardy. My son loves both the Gang and L&H, and it would be nice to show them all together.

-still the same, there were something like 10 Blackhawk "Our Gangs" that night and the action was spectacular! (It was like a truckload of steaks in a shark tank.)

According to Wikipedia, it states that Blackhawk released 79 out of 80 of the Hal Roach "talkies". I wonder which one didn't get released??

The two titles that I have really wanted on super 8, but can never find, are "Beginner's Luck", and "Free Eats". They don't come up on used lists very often.

Steve- I knew a guy at my Junior High school in the late 70's, who "dabbled" in film collecting, and he made the exact same mistake as you, when he purchased "Hook and Ladder", thinking it was "Hi Neighbor" [Wink] . This was probably a somewhat common mistake, since Blackhawk released "Hi Neighbor" a few years after releasing "Hook and Ladder". So, scanning the list, it was easy to assume they were one in the same.

James.

Hello, I have a question. The film I have belongs to the series that are you talking about? It is 400' sound B?W. I found it in a fleamarket in Greece and it is with greek subs. The title transalation is "Spanky and his ungle".
Thank you.

There's a shot in "Hook and Ladder" where the camera is following Stymie's pumper close behind and the wheels are about a foot away from being straight on their axles. On the big screen it's an amazing sight every time I see it!

Antonis,

What happens on that reel? The title isn't familiar.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 28, 2009, 03:18 PM:
 
CANNOT BELIEVE! James, you DO have FISHY TALES!!!!!!
Just 79 titles? Oh, in this case I only miss 52 in my miserable collection! [Big Grin]

Antonis, the film you have mentioned (and the picture as well) seems to be one OUR GANGs.
But I never heard about this title. An extract, maybe? Is it the title written in Greek or in English? I only ask because of course in Italy too titles were different, not literally translated (e.g.: FISHY TALES=BUTCH IL TERRIBILE).
 
Posted by Steve Klare (Member # 12) on April 28, 2009, 03:20 PM:
 
I think it's "Kid from Borneo"
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 28, 2009, 03:23 PM:
 
You are right, Steve. It must be THE KID FROM BORNEO. Spanky's uncle... And I've seen now Antonis was referring to a 400 feet film. So it cannot be an extract. I'm sure it is THE KID FROM BORNEO.

That's true: there are a lot of the Blackhawk L&H's and Our Gangs that you really have to remind yourself are really 30 year old prints. Providing they were treated well they are often like brand new.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 28, 2009, 04:56 PM:
 
Well, of course my prints are all used (I was a little kid when the series was aired for the fist time in Italy and I've been looking for these Blackhawk prints since last year). But most of them are really like new. And I really take care of them.

I'm actually collecting other TV series episodes that were aired on TV during the 70's here in Italy. They are all in color and some of them are (of course) fading. That's why I'm so happy about THE LITTLE RASCALS/OUR GANG: it won't never happen to them. And I always feel so good when I screen these shorts reminding me those afternoons waiting for Spanky and Alfalfa (and the rest of the gang, of course) for some big fun.

Blackhawk released all 80 Roach sound shorts in Super 8 sound.
A handful of the silents were also released, not even close to the entire output. An extract from GENERAL SPANKY was released by Castle as DOUBLE TROUBLE -- the 8mm versions might have only been silent, but the 16mm one had sound.

Red Fox released WALDO'S LAST STAND, from the dreadful post-Roach M-G-M period. They also released SCHOOL'S OUT, BEAR SHOOTERS, and OUR GANG FOLLIES of 1938.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 28, 2009, 07:57 PM:
 
Thanks a lot Tony.
I'm sleeping well tonight. [Big Grin]
I had a copy of Red Fox OUR GANG FOLLIES OF 1938 but personally I think Blackhawk print is much better.

I know now about GENERAL SPANKY. So sad it has never been released as a full feature. What can I say? Thanks you all. I still miss a lot of titles. And I hope to find them soon. Just knock my door if you have some you would like to sell. I'm here waiting for that magical TOC TOC.
 
Posted by Michael De Angelis (Member # 91) on April 28, 2009, 10:18 PM:
 
I had every single one in Super 8.
The bulk was sold ten years ago
when I moved. I still have some left that fill
the gaps with the ones I have in 16mm.

Little Daddy is very difficult to find.
My print had been sold.

Check out the Blackhawk release of: The Stolen Jools.
The Gang has a funny brief appearance.

General Spanky was never released as a complete feature.
However Castle Films released two 200 foot extracts from the feature,
along with matching headline versions.

I forgot to mention that there is a short film with Spanky
advertising Speedo Bikes. Bicycles.

If you like Alfalfa, then also check out the very brief part he has
in the Charley Chase short: Southern Exposure.

Hi Gian,

Nice to see your list.

Could change the title (so next time we need this, can easily find) to be "Little Rascals/Our Gang Blackhawk catalog list)".

For the two moderators (Kevin and Doug), can we have a sticky post (compilation) of those catalog list/numbers.

So far we have already (but scattered around):

- Tom & Jerry 8mm releases (Walton & MGM)
- MGM clamshell 8mm releases
- Universal 8 (Hard case/library case releases)
- Ken Films catalog numbers/titles
- Marketing Films

and so on that I cannot remember.

So we have a sticky post like you (Doug) did with "Film Reviews"

Hi Michael, and thank you so much for your post. Everything is now very clear. Your information about OUR GANG appearences in other Roach's shorts was very interesting. I did not know about it.

Good idea, Winbert. According to it, I'm actually posting the whole episodes list that should have been released by Blackhawk. I know there are episodes very difficult to find, but I do hope this will be helpful for other fans as it is for me.

Gian-

I'm so glad you started this post. The "Our Gang/Little Rascals" films have always been so fun to show. In the 1990's, I was able to expose a whole new generation to these great movies. My wife was running a summer camp. The kids were from 3 to 10. The Little Rascals had not shown on T.V. for many years, so they were original and new to these kids, and they loved them! They are timeless, and very repeatable.

Thanks for that final list. So, did we ever figure out the one short that didn't get released?

James.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 29, 2009, 06:59 AM:
 
James, thank you so much. I totally agree with you this is one of the best and funniest series that has ever been released since cinema exists. And this shorts are really timeless. Yes, the effect on the audience (in this case I'm thinking about my young nephews and not about my cat!) is always great. Even if they don't understand a single word of English!

Cannot remember when was the last time a LITTLE RASCALS episode was aired here in Italy. Probably so longtime ago.

I'm not really sure about 'that' short. Tony said the all 80 were released. Wikipedia says 79. Cheking all titles on Internet and completing the list I've seen titles I'm sure that were for sale on Ebay. But I cannot say if they were silent or sound. I don't have any reference here in Italy, 'cause the series has been aired several times, but has never been released for home entertainment (VHS-DVD) and I don't remember.

It could be that my list is not totally complete or correct (consider I did not include the silent shorts, even if I know for sure that some have been released by Blackhawk, as you wrote in your first reply to my post). But at least I now know that I still miss a lot in my collection. And that, out there, there are other big fans as I am!

I really hope to find soon the ones I miss. As I already said, I'd sell my right hand to have FISHY TALES in my collection: it is one of my favorite ever.

Doug, nice to meet you.
A simple question. I'll probably be in New York City after so longtime in June or July, this year. I remember a place on the Broadway, not so far from the Lincoln Center for the Perfoming Arts, where in 1994 there was a nice shop full of interesting momorabilias. Records, toys, even super 8 films. Does it still exist? And, if not, do you think I could find places like that one to discover (maybe) forgotten treasures? Who knows, hidden under a pile of old records or similar I could find a FISHY TALES print!

Gian Luca Mario Loncrini, Steve Klare

Thank you very much for you inf.
Yes the film I have is "Kid from Borneo" with "Uncle George" and the final translation "Spanky and his uncle" in the Greek production of the film. The Youtube links help me a lot.
Thank you all

Gian Luca,

Hello! I'm not sure about that shop......I go to Lincoln Center frequently, so I'll take a look around. On the weekends there are flea markets nearby where occasionally some super 8 items can be found.
Please keep in touch as the date of your visit gets closer. If you have any spare time, I'm sure there are a number of East Coast Forum members that would like to meet up.

Doug
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 29, 2009, 03:04 PM:
 
Hi Doug.
Consider I'm talking about a place where I've been 15 years ago. The very last time I came to New York City was in 2004, but I did not have so much time to dedicate to super 8.

I'm a little confused, now. Was this place close to the Lincoln Center or to Times Square? Cannot say... I remember it was a very colorful place, probably a gay friendly one, with a lot of TV series images everywhere ('Charlie's Angels' above all).

And 'Star Trak' toys and little models everywhere, stickers, records, tapes. It was a very weird and interesting place, so huge. I'm quite sure I was looking for a record I have found after so many years in Copenhagen!

Anyway, as I wrote in my last post I'm not sure if and when I come there. But thanks a lot for telling me about this 'hypothetical' meeting. It would be great to meet people personally that we just virtually know.

And about OUR GANG/LITTLE RASCALS: consider I still have my right hand! [Big Grin] Visiting those flea markets, think about me if you find some shorts I should miss in my collection (if you are not interested in, of course!). I don't mind a lot about price. I just would like to go on with it. When I started this post, yesterday, I was not supposed there were so many OUR GANG shorts existing on super 8.

Take care. A presto.

I seem to remember a little memorabilia shop called "FROM SMALL THINGS..." on Columbus, not far from Lincoln Centre. This was in the early '90s.
Was this the place?
If so it's no longer there.
Do you remember this store, Doug?
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 29, 2009, 04:47 PM:
 
Hi Michael. I can't remember the name. But I'm quite sure it was not a small one. Or maybe it was, and it was full of items. Well, consider I was stunned. I like places like this, full of memorabilia. Probably the walls were pink or red painted. But as I said, I was so excited because of all exposed objects and I did not pay so much attention to the shop itself.

Gian Luca,

I believe you're describing Colony Records on 49th & Broadway. In addition to having tons of CDs, vinyl and sheet music, they have an amazing collection of memorabilia of TV shows from the 50's to the 90's. It's a great place that brings back lots of memories. Do a Google image search and maybe the photos will look familiar.

Doug

THAT'S IT!
Ops... Probably nothing to do with gay people (I apologize if the owner is married and has 12/15 children!). And to super 8! But I'm quite sure there were 8 mm projectors and movies exposed. Thanks for helping, Doug. And please, don't forget our GANG!

Too bad you won't be on the other side of the states, Gian. I'd invite you over to our house for a night of good food a theater, Super 8 style!
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 30, 2009, 05:39 AM:
 
Well, I could manage a coast-to-coast super 8 tour! Thanks a lot for your invitation anyway, Osi! Who knows??? Any OUR GANG short to screen in your monumental collection? In this case I could chance my destination! [Big Grin]
 
Posted by Osi Osgood (Member # 424) on April 30, 2009, 10:34 AM:
 
Probably none that you don't already have. In fact, when it comes to Little rascals, I think I only have three sounds (Arbor day, Alafalfa playing football, a school related one) and a handful of silents.

Hi Gian-

There is a print of "Fishy Tales" for sale right now at Phil's Vintage Collectables. Here's the link-

http://8mm16mmfilmscollectibles.com/laurelhardy.htm

I have ordered from him before (about once a year). He's very reliable and his prints are always in very good condition, unless otherwise noted. Call to reserve!

James.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 30, 2009, 05:27 PM:
 
Hi Osi. I don't have ARBOR DAY in my collection......... [Wink]
And James, thanks a lot: I will order FISHY TALES immediately. I CANNOT BELIEVE! Let's hope Phil still has it. I'll let you know, guys. YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
 
Posted by Osi Osgood (Member # 424) on April 30, 2009, 05:57 PM:
 
Hmmm, I think Gian might be in line for a film that they didn't have before! I'll send you an e-mail Gian!
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on April 30, 2009, 06:08 PM:
 
Order sorted.
I now hope FISHY TALES is still available. James and Osi, you made my day.
THANKS GUYS
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on May 01, 2009, 03:14 AM:
 
James,
FISHY TALES was still available at Phil's. Thanks a lot for your great help. I really appreciated it!

Just discovered these talkies too exist (or they should, at least) on super 8:

1 Small Talk 1929
2 Railroadin’ 1929
3 Lazy Days 1929
4 Boxing Gloves 1929

And I made a mistake in my last list: 'ELECTION DAY' is a silent one. So ('GENERAL SPANKY' excluded) the Hal Roach/MGM OUR GANG talkies are 82.

6 missing ones are actually reaching my collection.

Indeed as I mentioned:

quote:
I had every single one in Super 8.
The bulk was sold ten years ago
when I moved.

Good Luck in your search. Hunting is part of the fun.

If you come across the other shorts where they star in other
comedians films, pick them up because eventually you will
want them also.

I believe that I forgot to mention, that they are also in
Charley Chase's The Cracked Ice Man. Do not forget the promo for Speedo Bikes by Spanky is very short, and humorous. The Stolen Jools is a fun two reeler
with many stars of the '30's.
 
Posted by Osi Osgood (Member # 424) on May 03, 2009, 02:13 PM:
 
Now, if I could have as much luck finding a decent color "Popeye Meets Ali Baba" as you are with your Little rascals films, I would be in heaven!

Hey Douglas M!!

(I know the answer .. "No no, a thousand times no!")
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on May 03, 2009, 02:37 PM:
 
Michael, don't do that to me. Don't remind me you had (and sold) all them. [Frown]
I think it's pretty impossible to find that commercial. But I really thank you so much for all info.
I actually have the Blackhawk Neighborhood House with Charley Chase. Darla plays his young daughter.

Ah ah ah Osi. The difference is that you are looking for a single title you miss. But about 'Little Rascals' I do miss a lot! [Razz]
 
Posted by Mike Tynus (Member # 1108) on May 03, 2009, 03:17 PM:
 
Hi Gian,
RAILROADIN' is interesting in that the sound discs for that were lost, so Blackhawk issued a silent version with a John Muri organ score. Then in 1979 the discs were found, so Blackhawk issued it with the original soundtrack. So there are actually two Super 8 sound versions out there. It's a fascinating film to watch as it's quite visual for being such an early talkie in spite of the early quality of the sound.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on May 03, 2009, 03:34 PM:
 
Hi Mike, I knew about it but it's nice to see how many people love this series! Unofrtunately I miss both versions. But I hope to find them soon. Thanks for posting!
 
Posted by Guy Taylor, Jr. (Member # 786) on May 03, 2009, 03:48 PM:
 
The very first "talkie" Our Gang comedy was "Small Talk."

It was the only three reeler of the Our Gang comedies so if complete on Super 8 it would be 600'.

I have more than fifty of these shorts and really love them.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on May 03, 2009, 03:54 PM:
 
Hello Guy. That's great, I did not think that there could be a Blackhawk catalogue somewhere confirming the complete existing list of OUR GANGs on super 8.

You have more than 50, so... you lucky! Hope to catch you up soon!
 
Posted by Michael De Angelis (Member # 91) on May 03, 2009, 09:47 PM:
 
Speedo bike commercial, was from Steel Valley Films.

10 years is a long time ago.
I only mentioned that, with your enthusiasm it makes it fun to sell to
someone as yourself who would appreciate the titles.

Another one to look for is: Beauty and the Bus with Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly.
Tommy Butch Bond has a great scene in the short. Blackhawk released some of the Todd/Pitts and Todd/Kelly shorts.

Since then, I built up the same titles in 16mm - not all but most of them.
 
Posted by Mike Tynus (Member # 1108) on May 03, 2009, 11:41 PM:
 
BEAUTY AND THE BUS is an enjoyable short. Patsy's first short in the series that also has a brief glimpse of Dorothy "Echo" DeBorba in the theatre audience.

Butch can also be seen in the Blackhawk Charley Chase short YOU SAID A HATFUL, as well as L&H's BLOCKHEADS.
 
Posted by Michael De Angelis (Member # 91) on May 03, 2009, 11:52 PM:
 
Good one Mike,

Dorothy has a brief part in Bombshell with Jean Harlow,
and Spanky is in Kentucky Kernels with Wheeler and Woolsey.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on May 04, 2009, 04:28 AM:
 
How many things I'm discovering.
Michael, do you think it could be possible to find that commercial released by Steel Valley Films (I suppose you are meaning on super 8)?
 
Posted by Michael De Angelis (Member # 91) on May 04, 2009, 08:47 PM:
 
Yes,

My copy is on Super 8.

Others are on 16mm.

It's very, very, short and a lot of fun.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on May 05, 2009, 03:23 AM:
 
Michael,
I try to see if it exists on YouTube.
If you hear about a copy for sale just let me know, please: I would be happy to have it. Thanks a lot.

It's a good film to play between shorts
on a Rascal program.

The hunt continues.

Regarding YOU SAID A HATFUL, about 15 years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Tommy "Butch" Bond at a movie collector's show where he was selling and autographing his new autobiography book. I had just picked up HATFUL on Super 8 a few months before. We got to chatting and I asked him about working with Charley Chase, and he immediately said, "Yes, in I'LL TAKE VANILLA." I mentioned HATFUL and he got a puzzled look on his face -- he wasn't aware of it. The filmography in his book doesn't mention it either.

I have FISHY TALES and THE LITTLE REBEL, the latter being a digest from 'General Spanky' - Currently, there is a fine seller offering his entire collection of Roach shorts, slowly though (Super 8 Sound and Silent) Finest boxes I've yet seen for L&H and Our Gang especially - So check out EBAY under 8mm Films - Ciao, Shorty (Giuseppe)

Ciao Giuseppe.

I'm doing my best to buy some of the titles actually for sale on Ebay USA you are referring about! FISHY TALES is simply hilarious.

GENERAL SPANNKY was never aired here in Italy. So I don't have any idea about it. And I know it's pretty hard to find the digest you are talking about. I hope to find it, one day. All the best.

Hi Mike, how are you?
I'm actually trying to find the time to watch your OUR GANG dvd's with all MGM episodes from 1938 to 1944.

You were right. Some are funny, but lot of them just put forward lots of locations and ideas again. And the result is a little redundant and repetitous.

At least I have now a complete 'vision' of the whole series. As I already stated, all the 'After Hal Roach' shorts had never been aired here in Italy.

So, once more, thanks a lot for giving me this chance.
Ciao.
 
Posted by Tony Stucchio (Member # 519) on February 13, 2010, 03:44 PM:
 
I checked an old catalog from 1978, where Blackhawk had listed all but FREE EATS, BEGINNER'S LUCK, BIG EARS, and THE FIRST SEVEN YEARS from the available 80 Roach talkies. A catalog from 1981 shows a drop to about 65, with FREE EATS, BEGINNER'S LUCK, and THE FIRST SEVEN YEARS all listed, but no BIG EARS. I need to dig out some more old catalogs to check when and if BIG EARS was ever released by them. If not, I stand corrected in my earlier post stating that all 80 were released.
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on February 13, 2010, 05:18 PM:
 
Good job, Tony.
I have also to make a new list to check what I still miss.

Posted by Tony Stucchio (Member # 519) on February 14, 2010, 10:44 PM:
 
I can't find BIG EARS -- my Blackhawk catalogs stop at the end of 1981. Perhaps it was released later?
 
Posted by Joe Caruso (Member # 11) on February 15, 2010, 12:25 PM:
 
After some inquiry, learned that BIG EARS was released in 16mm, though late (about the summer of '83) from Blackhawk - Shorty
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on February 15, 2010, 01:08 PM:
 
Joe, do you mean BIG EARS was never released on 8mm?
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on February 15, 2010, 05:40 PM:
 
Joe, Tony and Dino,
are you in a position to supply a list of all silent shorts issued by Blackhawk?
The only catalogue I have (thanks once again, Joe) is dated 1976, but I think others were released before Blackhawk has closed shop.

Any help, please? I know for sure about the following:

1 Big Business 1924
2 Mary, Queen of Tots 1925
3 Uncle Tom’s Uncle 1926
4 Shivering Spooks 1926
5 Dog Heaven 1927
6 Spook Spoofing 1928
7 Rainy Days 1928
8 Barnum & Ringling, Inc. 1928
9 Crazy Horse 1928
10 Old Gray Hoss 1928
11 Election Day 1929
12 Noisy Noise 1929
13 Wiggle Your Ears 1929
14 Fast Freight 1929
15 Little Mother 1929

Are there more?

Gian, I checked my earliest Blackhawk Bulletin (August, 1960), not one Our Gang is listed. As of Spring-Summer 1972, the Silent ones are BARNUM & RINGLING, INC, LITTLE MOTHER, CRAZY HOUSE, FAST FREIGHT, SPOOK SPOOFING & SATURDAY'S LESSON

Next Bulletin (April, 1976) shows MARY, QUEEN OF TOTS, NOISY NOISES, THE OLD GRAY HOSS, RAINY DAYS, UNCLE TOM'S UNCLE, WIGGLE YOUR EARS, BIG BUSINESS, ELECTION DAY, CAT-DOG & CO., plus ads for 49 Super 8 Sound Our Gang shorts

Another listing of July, 1976 has 58 Super 8 Sound Our Gang, no other silents

78 Our Gangs in Super 8 Sound listed by the April, 1978 edition

Think the last few came out between then and about 1984
 
Posted by Gian Luca Mario Loncrini (Member # 1417) on February 16, 2010, 02:09 PM:
 
Great, Job.

Now, also remember that Niles put out a few silent versions, and there were cut-downs in 200' from minor distributors, but essentially, you want THE best, you want Blackhawk, and that is the source to strive for - I'll see what I can trail - Ciao, Shorty

Secondlhy, I always found that those from Niles were silent version, any sound version from Niles?

I know - Most of the NILES pre-print was washy at best, and no they did not release all of what Blackhawk did. Blackhawk was licensed with Roach, and had THE best negs with which to work of course - Niles catalog I don't have, but they released some of the silents is all I remember

The Reel Images catalog of 1979 and the Niles catalog n. 72, of 1980, both list the same silent Rascals titles:
Baby Clothes
Back Stage
Big Business
Big Show
Boys will be Joys
Champeen
Derby Days
Giants vs Yanks
Lodge Night
Mary, Queen of Tots
Shivering Spooks
Sundown Ltd
Thundering Fleas
Uncle Tom's Uncle

For history's sake,the british 1938 Kodascope catalog lists the following 8mm silents:
Boys Will Be Boys
Buried Treasure
The Fourth Alarm
Monkey Business
Shivering Spooks
Fire Fighters
Ten Years Old
Young Sherlocks
Love My Dog
Mysterious Mystery
Seeing the World
No Noise
The Champeen
Official Officers
Its a Bear
One Wild Ride
Just in case one finds himself in an old abandoned warehouse or in Grandpa's attic,and stumbles on a ,forgotten during the last sixty years, big box full of std eights. In fact I found reel one of No Noise and Walton did release a one reel cutdown titled "Hospital Hi jinks" ,so, by joining reel one and the second part of "Hi jinks",I have a reasonably more "complete" 300 foot print.
I have also found about one meter (three feet) from the beginning of DOG DAYS,which Maltin lists as "unavailable"(i.e. lost),which someone used as leader for an amateur travelog of his !!! So this one exists also in std 8.

Just wondering if anyone else has any titles with neat little 'trailers' attached to the front. This was done after market of course.
I have 2 titles in particular, shrimps for a day' that has an older Jerry tucker talking at the beginning to his wife asking her if she has ever watched shrimps for a day, to which she replies unbelievably that SHE HASN'T! And another title 'moan and groan' with Max Davidson talking. I forget currently what he says, i'll have to watch again soon.
Anyone else have anything cool like this?

ps: btw- if anyone wants to quickly organize a list in a post alphabetically, you can do so here: Sort a list alphabetically
