High Society is a Pathé release from 1924, one of the Our Gang / Little Rascals series of films directed by Robert F. McGowan.
Orphaned Mickey lives with his Uncle Patrick and, although they are not rich, they are happy together. But his wealthy aunt adopts him and takes him to live with her and her son, Percy.
Besides missing his uncle and his pals in the gang, Mickey also is unhappy when his aunt and her butler try to turn him into a gentleman, including having to bathe every day!
When the aunt is away for a day Mickey invites the gang for a visit and the usual craziness ensues. Returning home to discover her home is nearly destroyed, the aunt decides Mickey would probably be happier back in his own neighborhood after all.
The film was remade in 1929 as a ‘talkie’, Small Talk.
Directors: Robert F. McGowan
