Welcome to the Allen Hoskins show - a real joy
19 November 2017 | by kekseksaSee all my reviews

This 1924 which gave a rare opportunity for the African Americans in the Our Gang cast to have an episode almost to themselves. Farina is at one and the same time in trouble with the gang (even brother Ernie) who chase her away from their barb-b-q and with her mother (alas we do not seem to know who the actress was) for eating too much meat which is giving her nightmares (strictly Farina is supposed to be a girl though played of course by a boy). Then, as a sort of pre-vision of the dream sequence to come, we have an elegant dance performance in the street in top hat and tails by Ernest Morrison Sr. which will later be replayed with Hoskins/Farina as the top-hatted dancer with Ernie's sister Dorothy as the female interest.

The dream itself comes a little later after Farina has consumed the contents of several picnic-hampers that have fallen from a lorry.

The other part of the dream has Farina being chased by giant versions of the gang (all dressed as cooks as they are at the bar-b-q) and a chase across the rooftops which provides a delightful spoof-version of the supposed "daredevil" antics that by this time absolutely all comedians (even Snooky the chimp) were engaging in and had been started back in 1918 by Larry Semon rather than by Harold Lloyd even if the later played an important role in popularising them) Altogether a charming piece of surreal fantasy with a certain poetry to it (increasingly, as he got older, Hoskins' role in the series) rather different from the usual slapstick and which Hoskins carries off with great poise and style right up to the splendid punch-line.
