A Young Man's Fancy
5 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

I think the title says it all. Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever occurs when after seeing his on and off girl friend Ann Rutherford entertaining a young naval officer, Mickey Rooney gets down in the dumps. But he perks up after seeing the new drama teacher Helen Gilbert and she's got a project for the kids at Carvel High School. She wants to do an original play and the one she picks was written by the love struck Andy Hardy.

The older generation of the Hardys has its problems too. Of all people Lewis Stone gets himself conned by a pair of grifters, Stanley Andrews and Byron Foulger, who tell him that some land he owns has a nice deposit of bauxite on it from which aluminum comes. Using the Judge's well known reputation for integrity to work for them, they fleece a lot of potential investors.

Of course business and financial problems do kind of sort themselves out for both generations of Hardy men. They always do.

Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever is a better than average feature from the series. It has the presence of Woody Van Dyke who usually was assigned to A list films for MGM and he did right by his cast. I guess Louis B. Mayer must have had nothing else for him at the moment and the moguls never liked for their contract people to be idle.

Whatever it was, it worked.
