Judge Hardy's Children was another funny Hardy family series outing
This was the third in the Hardy family series. It's also the third written by Kay Van Ripper who made an appearance in the trailer of this one with the other cast members in scenes made only for that short theatre ad-a rarity for a writer. In this one, Judge Hardy is invited to Washington, D.C. for a committee hearing so the rest of them come along too. As usual, that means Andy and Marian also meet members of the opposite sex they get smitten with there with most of the emphasis on Andy's courting a French diplomat's pretty daughter. Mickey Rooney is, as always, very funny as Andy and it's sooooo cool seeing him cut the rug here with that French girl! Oh, and Betty Ross Clarke takes over the Aunt Milly role in this and the next installment. Also, while I didn't recognize him here while watching, Jonathan Hale has a role in this as one of the corrupt politicians. Later in the year, he'd begin a regular role as J.C. Dithers in the Blondie series. I'll review those concurrently with these Hardy reviews chronologically by release dates. So on that note, Judge Hardy's Children is another winner in the Hardy series!
