Going to Press is a 1942 Our Gang short comedy film directed by Edward Cahn. It was the 204th Our Gang short (205th episode, 116th talking short, 117th talking episode, and 36th MGM produced episode) that was released.
Determined to uncover the identity of the mysterious leader of a juvenile extortion racket, the gang sets up a crusading newspaper called The Greenpoint Press. The kids gratefully accept the help of a pleasant, well-spoken youngster named Frank, little suspecting that he is the duplicitous boss of the dreaded Gas House Gang. Only after Frank's henchmen have taken Froggy for a "ride" (a harmless but painful one) are the kids able to expose the villain and save the day.
