You're Only Young Once marked a more light-hearted Hardy family adventure after the more serious previous one
Just watched this, the second of the Hardy family series. While Mickey Rooney, Cecilia Parker, and Sara Haden return from A Family Affair, Lewis Stone and Sara Holden take over from Lionel Barrymore and Spring Byington, respectively. Some loose ends are tied from the previous film but the bulk takes place on Catalina Island for a family vacation. Both Andy and Marian meet someone they fall for despite both having someone else they're pining for. By the way, Andy's home girlfriend Polly, played previously by Margaret Marquis, is now played here by Ann Rutherford. She's certainly better-looking than her predecessor, that's for sure! This one's more light-hearted than it's predecessor, a tone that remains for most of the series' run. The fact that this was basically a series entry is driven home by the fact that after "The End" shows on screen, Lewis Stone then comes back on screen and tells us to expect more adventures of his family again soon! I'll certainly be coming back for more so watch this space under my username for further reviews of more Hardy family adventures...
