And Ace the Wonder Dog
13 August 2012 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Andy Clyde and Shemp Howard made five Columbia shorts together and their vastly different comedic registers didn't mesh well. Shemp was always on, with twitches and schemes. Andy was gentler, slower to act and yet he was the lead comic in these pieces. So in this movie, when Andy thinks that brother-in-law Shemp and wife Lela Bliss want to murder him for his insurance, his only friend is his dog, Ace, who has just moved over from RKO to Columbia.

The whole thing is a pretty much run-of-the-mill Columbia short, sustained by the comedy chops of the leads and the fact that Ace is a handsome animal who is clearly having a lot of fun in his role.
