| Well made and entertaining start for an obscure comedy series
As a fan of Columbia's short-subjects, I find this to be one of the very best the studio offered. Jules White's direction is superb, allowing room for character development and entertaining story-telling. The short plays out like a mini-feature, and White handles the fairly straight plot without relying on the large doses of the slapstick humor Columbia is most notable for. Don't get me wrong, there are still plenty of gags to satisfy fans, but the change of pace is a welcomed one.

This two-reel comedy gave birth to a series of shorts that would become known as "The Glove Slingers". In future entries, the storyline would move to a college setting, which provided more fun, laughs, and boxing matches for another couple of years.
