Synopsis by Hal Erickson

When the Our Gang kids make the acquaintance of Billy Lord, a wealthy youngster who owns his own home-movie camera, the youngsters decide to go into the motion-picture business. With movie-struck teenager Martha Sleeper as their leading lady, the kids put together a rip-roaring cliffhanger adventure, with thrills and spills aplenty. Alas, the film's premiere is disrupted by shouts of "Phooey!" from Jackie Condon, who is angered at having been left out of the proceedings. A few well-aimed eggs and tomatoes hurled by another outcast, Jay R. Smith, all but guarantees that the film's first screening will be its last. Combining clever and inventive gags with surprisingly slipshod material, the silent, two-reel Better Movies made its own theatrical debut on November 1, 1925.
