Like a previous IMDb reviewer I got my first exposure to Andy Clyde through watching this 1937 Columbia two-reeler, and like that reviewer I am glad I did. Clyde appeared what is believed to be the longest series of short comedies in cinema history without ever becoming a big star, and from this film I think I got something of a sense of why. There are plenty of laughs, it's pleasant viewing all the way through, and even though not all the laughs come directly from it, Clyde's character of a good-hearted fuddyduddy old man is an amusing one I enjoyed spending time with, and he's pseudo-dignified enough to be funny to put in compromising situations.

Humor involving men's lodges seems to have been much more prevalent than today in the 1930s - 1950s era (see Laurel and Hardy's "Sons of the Desert" or "Be Big," or countless Amos 'n' Andy scenarios), but here, unusually, the lodge is the wholesome influence on suffering-husband Clyde and the problems arise when his nephews dalliances take him away from a lodge meeting, and when a questionable night-club singer steals his lodge money. It's basically an old-fashioned farce condensed into two reels, and it's very well played. Andy Clyde also demonstrates some impressive physical flexibility in the early scenes! Watch out for a slightly disturbing moment where the singer tries to seduce Andy by appealing to him as a father.
