In this "lost" Our Gang two-reeler, the kids tried their hand at inventing, with the expected hilarious results. One of the best "miracle" devices was an automatic dressing machine, designed for little kids like Bobby "Wheezer" Hutchins who have difficulty clothing themselves. Also worth mentioning was a submarine-like automobile (powered by Pete the Pup), which figured prominently in the slapstick climax. First released on March 10, 1928, "Edison, Marconi & Co." is one of the handful of silent Hal Roach/MGM "Our Gang" comedies that apparently no longer exists.
