Janney and pal Coghlan are a pair of youngsters who have a knack for getting into mischievous situations. Reminiscent of the OUR GANG comedies, the PENROD series does its best to recapture turn-of-the-century youngsters, especially by placing them in a vacant-lot clubhouse which is

off-limits to "sissies." A remake, again remade in 1937. Author Tarkington, who had served in the Indiana legislature, was well acquainted with the rural Midwest of his boyhood, as his young Hoosier heroes--extremely popular in the literature of the time--would attest. He later wrote the Pulitzer

Prize-winning novel from which Orson Welles derived his fine second feature film THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS (1942).
