    Description

    Our Gang Comedy Lot (MGM, 1929). Stills (2) (5" X 7") and Books (2) (6.5" X 9", 20 pages). Hal Roach's famous "Our Gang" short subjects were made from 1922 until 1944. These stills and books come from the silent era, with original members Allen 'Farina' Hoskins and Joe Cobb being joined by Bobby 'Wheezer' Hutchins, Harry Spear, Jean Darling and Mary Ann Jackson. One of these silver gelatin stills has the wonderful distinction of having the children's autographs on the verso. Signed in pen are the names Joe Cobb, Jean Darling, Farina (different color ink), Harry Spear and Mary Ann (in pencil). The front side has an image of the entire gang in a wagon circa 1929 and has creasing in the upper quarter of the still. The unsigned still is in excellent shape with "Our Gang" written in ink in the lower border and "1925" written in pen on the verso. The books have edge and spine wear, minor stains on the covers, and light smudges on the inside pages. The books are identical except for the color of the covers. The books contain several color shots of each of the children, as well as one of director Robert McGowan, "the gang's second daddy." Fine+.

    Estimate: $800 - $1,200.
