  1. My cousin and I were in the movie made in Sikeston, MO in 1970. I remember sitting on a bench with other kids. My line was “”I’m Hungry” in response to what we would do with the reward money. We all got to attend the viewing at Malone Theater. Would LOVE to obtain a copy of the movie!

  2. I am in possession of a Melton Barker film. I was told it was a local film that was made in Morristown, Tn. I started research and happened upon this site.

  3. My mother said she and one or two of her siblings were in an “Our Gang” local film, when they were children during the Depression. They lived in Vicksburg, Mississippi. She particularly remembered sitting on a bench with a bunch of other kids, singing a song. Barker was in nearby Yazoo City in 1938 or 1939, which would have been the right time. Maybe he stopped in Vicksburg, or maybe my grandmother drove the kids to Yazoo City. I’ve always wished I could get my hands on that film!

  4. I’m on a search right now for a local film in Fredericksburg, Tx. My mom and aunt were in it. My mom remembers a lot of the kids that were in it and when I took it to a community garage sale page on Facebook there was a guy who said he played a good kid that protected the little girl.

    So at the moment I’m on a hunt for someone with a copy of the local film and if I can find it, I would love to also send a copy in for the archive.

    I’ll let you know if I can find it.
