Featured role. Jokingly referred to as "Pancho Farino" in the titles. Maltin & Bann
indicate that the usual nickname was used, but it doesn't appear in this print. He's given a lot of comedic
moments in this film, first as he's trying to get into the gang's hideout, then during the haunted house sequence.
Supporting role. Not listed by Maltin & Bann. She tries to get into the gang, and is missing from the
runaway sequence, at least until she joins her parents as they come to the haunted house.

at the haunted house.

16 shooting dates went into the making of this film. A week after shooting had finished on the previous film,
"Shootin' Injuns" had its 'start' date on Jan. 19th. Shooting continued until Feb. 5th, when it was
considered 'finished.' No shooting took place on Jan. 18th, Jan. 25th, or Feb. 1st, which were all Sundays. After
this, the Our Gang unit waited a little over a week before filming "Official Officers" (no. 40).
There were 35 copies of this film printed for its initial release.
This copy is a Kodak Cinegraph print. The crew credits are original, but the inter-titles have been
remade with the original wording. The picture quality is good, and the soundtrack is made up of rearranged Leroy Shield
music. The print totals 19:10, with about 15:50 of it original footage. Ignoring the inter-titles, almost the
entire original film is included. This version has appeared on numerous bootlegs.
