This time around, the Our Gang kids are anxious to become detectives, forming a secret society called the J.J.J.'s (the "Jesse James Juniors"). Stumbling upon the society's headquarters, youngster "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison brags that he himself is a master detective, then weaves a fantastic story about rescuing a rich little girl from a desperate gang of kidnappers. The kids swallow Sammy's story hook, line, and sinker -- and even fall for his claim that he used the reward money to create a fabulous amusement park called Freetown. The two-reel Our Gang silent comedy Young Sherlocks was originally released on November 26, 1922.
