Listen, Darling was one of the most enjoyable of the early Judy Garland vehicles
I had previously watched this back in the '90s when I borrowed this VHS version from the library and I remember enjoying it but when I watched it again on YouTube, I had forgotten much of the plot. As a result, I enjoyed this even more now with young Judy Garland in all her natural glory whether singing or doing her dramatic scenes. The reason I watched this again, however, was since I was reviewing various Our Gang shorts and other films featuring at least one of that group's members in chronological order, this was next on the list since another of this movie's players was Scotty Beckett-a former member from the early '30s. He was funny here. Also liked Walter Pidgeon as a potential love interest for Judy and Scotty's mother-Mary Astor, Freddie Bartholomew as a family friend, and Alan Hale Sr. as another potential family friend. So on that note, I highly recommend Listen, Darling. Oh, and that's Charley Grapewin-future relative of Garland in The Wizard of Oz-as the guy at the gas station.
