The Courtship of Andy Hardy

Picture is studded with laugh lines throughout, and displays general effervescing tempo for maximum reaction. Mickey Rooney - between adolescence and manhood - successfully balances the assignment in excellent style. His is a strong performance with accent on straight acting ability and without recourse to the mugging antics that he called on previously.

Story [from characters created by Aurania Rouverol] opens with Judge Hardy endeavoring to reconcile a couple with an adolescent daughter. He invokes the aid of Andy to date the girl and break her of a haughty complex and Andy’s campaign is successful in this respect.

Donna Reed is the girl who is turned over to Andy for regeneration, and how he finally succeeds is neatly contrived in the screenplay, with substance in both lines and situations provided by the script.
