In the late 1940s or early 1950s, a local "Our Gang" movie was made in Kingsville, Texas. It was cast with local kids I cannot seem to find anyone who knows of this film, so was hoping you could help.

    Hi

    I am not aware of anything that specifically happened in Kingsville, but I do know of at least one similar instance. Back in the 20s, the Hal Roach studio prepared an Our Gang script especially for the purpose of a local production in Kansas City using local kids. By the late 40s/early 50s, the series had come to an end, so I am not sure if it would have specifically been an Our Gang-related project as opposed to something that simply featured a child cast.

    The series was a big success. The move Our Gang was produced at the Roach studio starting in 1922 as a silent short subject series. Later on Roach just changed distributors from Pathé to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in the year 1927. Our Gang was noted for showing those children who behave in a relatively natural way. Child actress who performed in the series was well acknowledged and the series itself was proved to be stardom for them.

    This series was one of the favorite series of the teenagers of that era. Such master piece has never been done by any production team. Overall it was a big success. Our Gang also highlighted the unique relationship of African-American children.
