Press Sheet For FREE EATS

Press sheet for FREE EATS, an Our Gang comedy produced by the Hal Roach Studio 1n 1932.

An item at lower right proclaims that Spanky McFarland is a new member of the gang. FREE EATS marked his first appearance in an Our Gang comedy.

The old type of artwork seen on these posters tended to depict black people in a way that has since been criticized. But at the time these films were made it was unusual for movies to even depict people of different races as friends, the way the kids were in these films.

And here are a couple of Spanky items that were on the press sheet, I'll put them in at a larger size to make them easier to read.
