The Complete Hal Roach Streamliners Collection, Volume 6 - "Newly scanned from original 35mm film elements, ClassicFlix presents the sixth and final volume of Hal Roach’s streamliners with a Cinecolor double feature of the producer’s reboot of the “Our Gang"" franchise.

When motion picture comedy producer Hal Roach returned to his innovative “streamliner” format in the late 1940s, he decided to revive “Our Gang” with a brand-new group of “rascals.” The result was Curley (1947), a slightly expanded telling of the classic Our Gang short Teacher's Pet (1930), which mined laughs from the bygone days of puppy love and schoolboy crushes.

The following year saw Roach's new gang return in Who Killed Doc Robbin? (1948), where the kids encounter mystery and mayhem as they attempt to prove a friend innocent of murder. Although both streamliners were ambitiously filmed in Cinecolor, Roach abandoned his concept after Robbin, turning his attention to the new medium of television.

Both Curley and Doc Robbin star Larry Olsen (as “Curley”), Eilene Janssen, Dale Belding, Peter Miles, Ardda Lynwood, Donald King and Rene Beard (brother of Matthew “Stymie” Beard!). The adults include Frances Rafferty, Kathleen Howard, Virginia Grey, George Zucco, Paul Hurst and Grant Mitchell.

Curley (1947, 53 min.)

In a case of mistaken identity, Curley and his pals make things unpleasant for their new school teacher.

This streamliner remake of the Our Gang short Teacher’s Pet (1930) stars Larry Olsen as Curley and features Frances Rafferty, Eilene Janssen and Kathleen Howard.

Who Killed Doc Robbin? (1948, 50 min.)

When Dr. Robbin’s lab is blown up, the gang goes about finding clues to the crime in a creepy haunted house filled with secret passages, booby traps and a frightful gorilla.

Larry Olsen returns as Curley in this comic mystery and is aided again by the return of the entire gang. George Zucco, Virginia Grey, Don Castle, Whitford Kane and Paul Hurst are also featured."
