NOTES

powered by AFI

The opening title card reads: "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer presents Judge Hardy's family in The Courtship of Andy Hardy." The words are superimposed over a photograph of Mickey Rooney, Lewis Stone, Fay Holden and Cecilia Parker. Parker returned to "The Hardy Family" series after being on maternity leave during production of the previous two films. Her character, "Marian Hardy," was said to be "away in New York" in those films. Although actor Lewis Howard is listed in Hollywood Reporter production charts and news items as being cast in the film as Marian's "love interest," he was not in the released film; that role was played by William Lundigan. A Hollywood Reporter news item noted that some sets built for the film on M-G-M's backlot had to be moved indoors due to wartime restrictions on exterior night shooting. Ann Rutherford, who portrayed "Andy's" girl friend "Polly Benedict" in most of the films in the series, made her last appearance in the role in this film and only appears in one scene. For additional information on other films in the series, please consult the Series Index and see the entry for A Family Affair in AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3.1269.
