The opening title card reads: "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer presents Judge Hardy's Children, Another Story of Judge Hardy's Family." After the title, a photograph of the four principal Hardy Family cast members appears to identify each actor and character. The Variety review notes that the plot was apropos to then prevalent headline news stories about the Tennessee Valley Authority and Supreme Court decisions on utility holding companies. According to various reviews and news items, this was the first motion picture of actors Robert Whitney, Jacqueline Laurent and Boyd Crawford. This was the third film in the Hardy Family series, and the first of two in which Betty Ross Clarke appeared in the role of "Aunt Milly." All other films in the series featured Sara Haden in the role. For additional information on the series, consult the Series Index and the entry above for A Family Affair.
