A Lucky Strike for Lewis Stone
24 June 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Following the success of "A Family Affair" (1937), MGM continues "The Hardy Family" in earnest. This second of the long-running series makes some important changes in the family. Most notably, the role of judge father is taken over by Lewis Stone (as James K. Hardy), who decides to take his small-town family to California's Catalina Island for a summer vacation. He wants to catch swordfish. Pretty blonde daughter Cecilia Parker (as Marian Hardy), energetic son Mickey Rooney (as Andrew "Andy" Hardy), supportive wife Fay Holden (as Emily) and aunt Sara Haden (as Milly Forrest) round out the family...

The children find "romance" with significantly more "experienced" partners. Fast lifeguard Ted Pearson (as Bill Rand) begins to date Ms. Parker. He's married. And, mature-looking teenager Eleanor Lynn (as Geraldine "Jerry" Lane) begins smooching young Rooney. She smokes and shares liquor. Good parenting skills from Judge Hardy come in handy when the children's romances become more serious. Lastly, Mr. Stone faces an unexpected crisis. A valuable addition to the "Hardy" series, Stone is a great strength. It ends with Stone inviting viewers to watch for "Judge Hardy's Children" (1938).
