Storyline

When Judge James K. Hardy gets a letter from an old friend, Dora Northcote, explaining she and her husband Bill may lose their ranch because an adjacent rancher won't renew their water lease contract, he takes his family with him to alleviate their frustrations at home. His wife Emily is upset with spring cleaning, Andy has quarreled with his girlfriend, Polly Benedict, while Marian similarly quarreled with her boyfriend, Dennis Hunt. But at the ranch, new problems arise. Judge Hardy invests heavily in some adjacent property to help the Northcotes and may lose it all, Marian falls in love with the older foreman, Ray Holt, even though she's not ready for marriage, and Andy's showing off causes a prize horse of Ray's 8-year-old daughter, 'Jake', to break a leg. Things look bleak for the Hardys, but not for long. Written by Arthur Hausner <genart@volcano.net>

Mickey, a drugstore cowboy
18 April 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Lewis Stone as Judge James Hardy is not one ever to not answer the plea of an old friend, in this case an old friend he might have been romantically involved with back in the day. Nana Bryant has written to Stone from Arizona where she and husband Ralph Morgan own a ranch they're about to lose because their neighbor Thurston Hall won't renew their water rights without a hefty price interest that would break them. So the nuclear family Hardys, Stone, Fay Holden, Mickey Rooney, and Cecilia Parker go off Out West With The Hardys.

Coincidentally enough it's at a time where both Hardy children are having some romantic difficulties. When are they ever not in this series? But Parker is taking a liking to widower ranch foreman Gordon Jones while his daughter Virginia Weidler show Rooney there's a lot more to being a cowboy than dressing the part.

Although this Hardy family film has a lot of good points to it. It's bogged down by the fact Mickey really acts like a jerk in this one. As usual trying to show off. This is one time a father and son talk just was not the answer, the Mick needed a trip to the woodshed.

As it always does everything works out between Mickey finding a solution to the mess he makes, Parker deciding that maybe she's a city girl after all, and Fay Holden of all people coming up with the solution to the problems of her husband's old girl friend.

Not the best of the Hardy series, but all right.
