Information and Film Reviews for General Spanky the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

The only feature "Our Gang" comedy goofed by transplanting them to a Civil War milieu popular at the time. Confederate kids Spanky and Alfalfa play soldier, ultimately outsmarting Union troops. The rascals are still funny sometimes, but Buckwheat's role as an eager slave is disturbing today.
