General Spanky (1936)
Orphaned shoeshine boy Spanky (Spanky McFarland) is working on a Mississippi riverboat during the Civil War. There he befriends young runaway slave Buckwheat (William "Buckwheat' Thomas). After wronging a vicious gambler (Irving Pichel), Spanky and Buckwheat are forced to jump ship. Finding solace at a nearby house, the two are picked by Marshall Valiant (Phillips Holmes) for an important mission. This inspires Spanky to organize the local kids to form a small army of their own.
Starring: Spank McFarland, William 'Buckwheat' Thomas, Irving Pitchel
Viewer Review: "Although he's given top billing & the title role, George Spanky' McFarland is rivaled throughout the film's first half by little Billie 'Buckwheat' Thomas. Here were two of the finest young actors to ever appear in American movies. With all the experience of old, seasoned pros, these two gamin could steal scenes & hearts with equal bravado. A constant joy, without a false note between them, they provide the essential reason for watching the film today."
