The Andy Clyde's Columbia Comedies is a film-by-film look at the short subjects Andy Clyde starred in for Columbia Pictures from 1934-1956. Clyde had the longest running series of shorts at that studio after The Three Stooges, with nearly 80 productions. Each film will be discussed. There will also be introductory chapters on Clyde's early life, stage work, silent films, and early talkies. A concluding chapter will discuss his appearances in feature films, including several Hopalong Cassidy westerns, and his work in television on such shows as Lassie and The Real McCoys. The Andy Clyde's Columbia Comedies will also include information found in no other study, and many rare photos and graphics.
