Skippy the movie?!

Well, maybe this is another for the "thrillmer must live under a rock" file, but I had absolutely no idea there was a Skippy movie made back in 1931. Or a sequel, Sooky! Here I am this morning waxing peotic about Skippy falling into obscurity, and I had no idea his fame at one point stretched onto the silver screen. Jackie Cooper was nominated for his role as the titular character. Director Norman Taurog won best director that year for crying out loud! Why has the world turned its back on you, Skippy?

One of my favorite sites, the Internet Movie Database has quite a rundown on this film and its sequel. Worth a look...especially for the Sooky lobby card.

*sigh* I really want to see these now.
