The second entry in the Glove Slingers series was the second and last appearance of Shemp Howard as Uncle Pat. For this short, the casting and story line of the series was changed drastically. The character of Terry is now a college-bound young man. The character is now played by David Durand, who is a pretty likable hero on screen. This short actually appears as an extra on the DVD of Golden Boy, although I think the first entry with Noah Beery Jr. would have been a better choice.

John Kellogg plays the role of Diggins, a rival who has a grudge against Terry for stealing his girl. To get even, he steals Terry's college money and he, Pat, and Chuck track him down at a restaurant, where a wild fight ensues.

Fear not, Shemp was still active in the Columbia shorts department after this entry and eventually would have his own solo series before joining Moe and Larry as the third stooge in 1946.
