The Short

Plot: The Rascals have put together their own full-fledged motion picture enterprise, but the only thing they are missing is a camera. When Billy Lord realizes this, he skips his violin lesson to share his motion-picture camera.  During the filming of their movie, Jackie and Turkey-egg play pranks on the gang to ruin their movie because they were left out of it. The gang however creates their film with elaborate (maybe too elaborate) sets and props, but just as they are premiering it, Jackie and Turkey-egg bring a police officer to clear out the barn.
Quotes:
