“The Good Soldier” discusses MGM’s transformation of Our Gang into slick, stilted morality plays and its cancellation of the series in 1942. Describes how Our Gang joined the Office of War Information’s efforts to promote images of happy, multiracial democracy in the years before WWII. Ends with background on the Jim Crow army and Farina and Buckwheat’s service in the armed forces.
