Little Rascals to the Rescue


At the turn of the last century, veteran filmmaker Hal Roach moved to Hollywood in search of becoming an actor. By the early 1920’s, Roach found his real calling as a producer and opened the Hal Roach Studios. He would go on over the next three decades to create some of the motion picture industry’s most famous stars. His stable of stars included Laurel and Hardy, Our Gang and the Little Rascals and Harold Lloyd. The feature films he produced included such legends as Topper and the original 1 Million BC.


The Hal Roach Story features a film clips representing his entire career as well as a number of interviews, including Mr. Roach himself, taken from two interviews with him shot back in 1985. This is an intimate portrait of one of Hollywood’s most successful moguls.
