A Family Affair

1937, Movie, NR, 67 mins

MGM hit on something big with this picture, the first in the "Andy Hardy" series. Much of the cast of AH, WILDERNESS! was used here, including Barrymore as Judge Hardy and Rooney as his puppyish son, Andy. As usual, Rooney is up in arms over that "swell gal" Polly, played by Marquis. Although critics at the time felt that the film might score as part of a double bill, studio moguls were apparently unaware of the monster they had unleashed, which spawned a series totaling 15 movies from 1937 through 1946. In the second film in the series, YOU'RE ONLY YOUNG ONCE (1938), Lewis Stone took over for Barrymore, who was suffering from the disease that was to cripple him.
