Andy Clyde ACTOR


Andy Clyde was born on March 25th, 1892 in Blairgowrie, Perthshire in Scotland, born the fifth of six children to actor, producer and manager John Clyde.  He also had a brother, David and a sister, Jean who went on to pursue careers in the entertainment industry.
He began his career in entertainment working as a vaudeville stage performer in Scotland in the 1920's.  Clyde then relocated to Los Angeles, California and began working as an extra in a number of Mack Sennett's short comedies. 
After gaining some experience on set, he began to catch the attention of Hollywood and it was just a matter of time before Clyde began to work on more films as a feature player.  By the mid 1930's, Clyde was even given the chance to have his own series of short comedies with Educational Pictures and later began to also work with Columbia Pictures for quite a number of years.
Clyde is most remembered by many for his roles as the comedy side-kick in a variety of Western films such as the "Hopalong Cassidy" series.  He portrayed the character, California Carson.  Clyde also worked with actor, Whip Wilson on another series of Westerns with Monogram Pictures.
Some of his more well known films were, "You Were Never Uglier", "The Little Minister", "The Green Years" and his last film role was in, "The Tycoon".
In addition to film work he also appeared on a variety of television series such as, "No Time for Sergeants" (1964) starring Andy Griffith, "The Real McCoys" (1957) starring Walter Brennan, "City Detective", "Lassie", "The Andy Griffith Show" and "Gunsmoke".
He was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and worked in the industry for over 4 decades adding over 300 credits to his resume.
Andy Clyde married only one time to Elsie Tarron and they remained together until he passed away on May 18th, 1967 in Los Angeles, California at the age of seventy five from natural causes.
