I have the Little Rascals book from Maltin & Bann and have read it thoroughly. I have also checked out several web pages regarding the comedies and you appear to be the expert. I am curious if you have any information on Shirley Coates. She appeared in several of the comedies but was never mentioned in any of the biographies I have seen. What happened to her after the series and do you know if she is still living. Also, the great Harry Spear mystery. I apologize if you have already solved this one and it is somewhere on your webpage, but is Harry still living or is that still an unknown fact. I have read accounts of both in various books and web pages.
