This middling precursor to the Our Gang comedies of the 1920s was produced by the Child Player's Company. Running two reels, the film concerns the efforts by a movie producer to put together a troupe of "kiddie" performers. Once he's assembled a talented group of youngsters, the producer proceeds to crank out a Western epic in which the kiddies enact adult roles. It was the same premise later exploited by Educational Pictures' Baby Burlesks one-reelers of the 1930s, and it still wasn't very funny then. When Our Gang came into being in 1922, producer Hal Roach was smart enough to realize that children were far more appealing playing "themselves" than pretending to be grown-ups.
