Calling Doctor Howard!
20 July 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

If you think you've seen this movie before, you have. Director Del Lord and writer Felix Adler migrated eventually to the Columbia shorts department, where they wound up doing Three Stooges movies, and this short, about how barbers Billy Bevan and Andy Clyde head out west to find gold and discover it already minted and put into stacks, was remade once or sixteen times for the Stooges.

Andy Clyde had just stopped being a supporting comic with a long beard on the Sennett lot, and was just starting his co-starring stint with Billy Bevan, wearing a nice French beard and mustache. They handle this bit very competently in the Sennett style, but they were always house players and eventually they left, Bevan to do some nice supporting work and Andy Clyde to a long career -- he had the second-longest running series at Columbia, many of which are excellent, support in major movies and wound up as a supporting character in THE REAL MCCOYS. Worthwhile on its own merits, it also might be interesting for anyone who wants to see how comedy evolved.... or perhaps devolved under Jules White.
