Our Gang's BEAR FACTS (1938) Blackhawk

Unread post by silentfilm » Wed Jan 17, 2018 10:00 pm

BEAR FACTS (1938), an Our Gang comedy short with Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Porky and Darla. The gang finds out that Darla's dad is a bear tamer in the circus. They go over to her house and Alfalfa tries to impress her with a wild tale of teaching bears how to dance.

This is a Blackhawk print on Eastman B&W 1972 stock (square plus) with the original leader. There are tape splices where the leader and tail were removed and re-attached. There are also two tape splices in the main title, but I did not notice a jump in the music. Blackhawk main title. Variable area soundtrack. Very sharp picture. The print has only minor wear, except for the final 5-10 seconds, where there is a moderate amount of wear on the last shot and the "End" title. I wonder if it was stored tails-out at one time.
