In the release print, "Meet the Beat of My Heart" (music by Harry Revel, lyrics by Mack Gordon), sung by Judy Garland, was shorted to about half the length of the prerecording. Judy's full version is available on the Rhino CD, "Judy Garland: Collectors' Gems from the MGM Films." See more »
I could see them remaking this movie in 2001 as a regular teen movie. What is "Love Finds Andy Hardy" about, really, other than a guy's quest for money, girls, and a car? Of course, the modern movie producers will have to add sexual humor to it. If you like teen movies and want to see their predecessor, if you're a fan of anyone in the cast, or just if you wanna catch up on your 1938 romance-comedies, this is a good movie to see. I would recommend it.
