The Ring and the Belle was another hilarious Andy Clyde short I watched on YouTube
4 September 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

The person who wrote the plot up above for this short is wrong, the fighter did not skip town but because of what happens to his jaw, he cannot fight. Anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself. This was another hilarious Columbia Andy Clyde short that I just watched on YouTube. In this one, Andy is a barber who also trains fighters. His wife (Vivian Oakland), however, threatens to leave him if he keeps boarding them in their home. He promises not to train them before pretending to throw one he kept upstairs out. Then comes the day of the fight...Like I said, there's plenty of hilarious slapstick throughout courtesy of director Del Lord (who also helmed many funny Three Stooges shorts) and the Columbia sound effects department. Ms. Oakland herself (who I remember from Laurel and Hardy's Way Out West) makes a fine foil for Clyde here and while Dudley Dickerson-a veteran of many Stooges shorts-isn't very funny here, it's nice to see him have more of a role as an associate of Clyde's at his barber place, not to mention at the boxing ring. So on that note, I highly recommend The Ring and the Belle.
