Storyline

The first twelve shorts made by Columbia in this series known as "The Glove Slingers." Noah Beery Jr. played 'Terry Kelly' in this one, while David Durand took the role in the next eight, and 'Bill Henry' in the last three. Here, the story deals with a young warehouseman whose uncle is a down-at-the-heels fight manager who discovers, to his surprise, that his nephew can 'sling leather.' He persuades the reluctant boy to accept a boxing match. Then, at the beginning of the bout, the boy learns that his opponent is the brother of his sweetheart. Strictly blue-collar Americana in this entry, but the remaining eleven all had a college setting. The series, other than sharing the same series-title, has no connection to an earlier late-1920s/early 1930s series of shorts made by Universal Pictures.

Enjoyable example of Jules White at his tasteful best
15 January 2013 | by (Whiting, Indiana) – See all my reviews

No joke intended--Director Jules White could and did occasionally make very entertaining and restrained films; you could almost call this one "breezy", due in no small part to White's usual quick pace.

The characters are all surprisingly appealing for a Columbia short, and the scene between Dorothy Grainger and Victor Travers as Father Donovan is downright whimsical. The young Noah Beery, Jr is at his charming best, supported by a host of Columbia's excellent supporting players. Our pal Shemp Howard--believe it or not--is not the real funnyman in the cast; that honor goes to Paul Hurst, filmed the same year he, as the Union deserter, was shot dead by Vivien Leigh on the staircase at Tara.

I'll hang onto my copy of this one.
