Our Gang Silent Films | No. 21-Derby Day –

Thanks to The Lucky Corner for the following:

the kids:

main players
Mickey Daniels as “Mickie”
Featured role. He’s definitely the take-charge guy in this film. It’s his idea to have the kiddie race. At the race, his name is spelled “Micky.” He rides dog 001 (aka Bill).

Allen “Farina” Hoskins as “Farina”
Featured role. He swipes hot dogs in the early sequence, and then rides a tricycle in the kiddie race, eventually becoming the winner.

Joe Cobb as “Joe”
Featured role. He’s selling lemonade with Mickey in the early sequence. At the kiddie race, he gets some footage flirting with a girl, then rides the cow.

Jackie Condon as “Jackie”
Supporting role. He’s selling hot dogs with Jack in the early sequence, then rides a cart pulled by dog 003 (aka Barney) in the kiddie race.

Jack Davis as “Jack”
Supporting role. He’s selling hot dogs with Jackie in the early sequence, then rides Mary’s pony in the kiddie race. This was his last Our Gang appearance.

Mary Kornman as “Mary”
Supporting role. She’s the rich girl whose father is big at the racetrack.

Ernie “Sunshine Sammy” Morrison as “Ernie” aka “Sammy”
Supporting role. The inter-titles call him “Ernie,” but the board showing the jockeys with their accompanying animals lists him as “Sammy.” Maltin & Bann seem to indicate that the nickname “Sunshine Sammy” was used in this film, but it isn’t. He rides Dinah the Mule in the kiddie race.

George “Sonny Boy” Warde as “Sing Joy”
Supporting role. Listed by Maltin & Bann by the character name. The payroll summaries verify that Warde played this role. He joins the gang in their adventures, riding a cart pulled by the goat.

girl 021
Small part. The fat girl that flirts with Joe. She later appeared in “Big Business” (no. 23) and “Commencement Day.” (no. 26).
