One of the original Keystone Kops, Clarence Hennecke later worked as a gagman (or, as he was sometimes grandly billed, "comedy constructor") for Vitagraph, Fox, and Hal Roach. For the latter, Hennecke co-directed (with Stan Laurel) the Jimmy Finlayson farce Yes, Yes Nanette (1925). In the same vein, Hennecke later served as Frank Capra's assistant on Harry Langdon's classic feature comedies, including The Strong Man (1926) and Long Pants (1927). Sadly, there was little call for the veteran comedian's talents after the changeover to sound and he spent the remainder of his career as a Hollywood "dress extra."
