Seeing the World, also known as A Roamin' Holiday, is a 1927 silent Our Gang film, directed by Robert F. McGowan and Robert A. McGowan.[1][2][3] It was the 57th Our Gang short subject released. The film features James Finlayson, with a very brief appearance by Stan Laurel.


The gang's teacher (played by James Finlayson) is trying to win a trip to Europe. He does win, but the gang accompanies him as well, which causes his trip to become a nightmare. The group treks through Venice, Rome, Pompeii, Naples, and London. Finally, the entourage ends up in Paris, where Farina manages to falls off the side of the Eiffel Tower. Finlayson tries desperately tries to rescue Farina, leading him to wake up from what was apparently a daydream caused by the gang tossing sleeping pills into his water.
