| Much better than Clyde's later Columbia shorts.
"The Super Snooper" is a comedy short from Educational Pictures that stars Andy Clyde, a comedian from the silent era that continued making comedy shorts well into the sound era as well as starring as Hopalong Cassidy's sidekick in the majority of his westerns.

Andy plays a rich and well-respected man. But he's concerned what sort of boyfriend his daughter might have gotten as she's talking marriage and her previous boyfriends were very short-term and he didn't like them very much. So, when he learns where this boyfriend works, he goes undercover as a porter there to spy on him. Unfortunately, he ends up befriending the wrong folks and thinks the boyfriend is a crook...when it's really these new 'friends' who are jewel thieves. To see what happens next, see the film...and you really should.

This is a very cute film. Clyde is very good and seeing all the crazy thing happen to him (particularly at the police lineup) is quite funny and well worth seeing. And, I was surprised, as Clyde's later shorts for Columbia were generally a sad lot.
