The First Seven Years was an MGM release in 1930, directed by Robert F. McGowan, and is an Our Gang / Little Rascals comedy short.
Jackie is in love with Mary Ann but she doesn’t seem to know he exists. Jackie seeks some advice from Kennedy, the cop, who tells Jackie the best approach is caveman style. When Jackie tries that, telling Mary Ann that she’s his girlfriend and that’s that, Mary Ann knocks him down and pummels him.
As Jackie returns for better advice from Kennedy, Speck makes his move on Mary Ann. Seeing a great opportunity, Mary Ann tells the boys they’ll have to fight for her, and a duel is arranged. The boys meet with swords in hand, and the duel ranges over the backyards of the neighborhood, with the laundry hanging on the lines being the biggest victim!
