YouTube - The Big Premiere (1940)

YouTube - The Big Premiere (1940) Back in 1975 as a junior student at the University of Connecticut I was co-chairman of the Media, Film, & Lecture Committee of the Student Union Board of Governors.

One of our events that year was a "Little Rascals Film Festival" (Spanky and the gang") held at the Von Der Madden auditorium.(click the You Tube link to see some of the "gang"). My sister Janet, a freshman at the time, was event chairperson for this event. She made a large poster which was hung in the Student Union building to advertise this event. She was embarassed when I took the microphone prior to the movies and singled her out for her help.

It was a really funny event. Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Darla, Peety the dog and the whole "gang" were in true form and no one in the audience cried at all (except a few people who were laughing too hard!)
