Penrod and Sam
(1931)

Country: USA

Genre: Comedy

IMDb

Synopsis

As the organizers of a "secret" boys club, Penrod and Sam exclude the local "sissies" from membership, only to be forced to allow the obnoxious Rodney Bitts to join when Rodney's father buys the land where the club is based. Beyond the expected "Our Gang" antics and pranks, there is a moment of almost unbearable pathos when Penrod is told that his beloved dog has been run over by a car. Burying the pooch near his clubhouse, Penrod is shooed off the property by Rodney's father, whereupon Penrod's dad purchases the land himself -- a turn of events that delights Penrod and Sam, but does not bode well for poor Rodney!

Absolutely the best thing about this movie was Billie Lord as the 'sissy' Georgie Bassett - he was great! (Georgie's father - played by Johnny Arthur - was also marvellous.)

Dated, but Leon Janney is extraordinary as Penrod.
