The Old Grey Mare, She Ain't What She Used to Be

Andy Clyde's last short for Jules White is a remake of Charley Chase's THE NIGHTSHIRT BANDIT and Clyde's GO CHASE YOURSELF. It shows all the typical economies that Jules White practiced. Not only were large parts of the script reused, but lots of shots from both earlier efforts.

Even so, it is a very enjoyable movie. Clyde is summoned when the "Nightshirt Bandit" is seen on campus and soon finds himself mistaken for the thief and chasing a dog which has gotten hold of some cash. Clyde's character is not stupid, but events move far faster than he can and this long-time slapstick professional gives a typically fine performance, as does Dudley Dickerson in support.

This was not the end of the line for Clyde, who had started out with Sennett in the 1920s and survived the collapse of the King of Comedy's studio. He moved from twenty-minute film comedies to 20-minute TV comedies, where I saw him frequently on "Lassie" and "The Real McCoys".
