In this second episode of "The Hardy" series, the family vacations on Catalina Island.
2 June 1999 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

As the family vacations on Catalina Island, Judge Hardy puts the family estate at risk, Andy travels with a "fast" girl and sister Marion dates a married (heavens!!) man. Good fun, and a glimpse at a by-gone era, with of course the obligatory "man to man talk."
