Cole Porter's "Easy to Love," partially sung by Lee Wilde, then danced by Lee and Lyn Wilde at Joe's Place, had been intended for an earlier Hardy film. The ballad was set for Judy Garland to sing in Life Begins for Andy Hardy (1941), but this song, along with three other Garland vocals, was cut from the film. Judy's prerecording of the Porter classic can be listened to on the Rhino CD, "Judy Garland: Collectors' Gems from the M-G-M Films." See more »
A GREAT addition...Mr. Ruskin has lots to philosophy about in this movie
I have one caveat going into this comment: I am not a big fan of this series.... HOWEVER, this particular piece hits home to my personal life's experience.
First, I'd like to edify the previous comment;about the Chinese Doctor. You haveta remember that this was made in 1944, and the Japanese in the USA on the West Coast were INTERRED at camps around the US---EVEN the Japanese that were born in America had to give up EVERYTHING, and leave.
Remember, The doctor was born in "That bastion of culture, and learning"....to which, the Judge replies, 'Peking?'.... The Doctor says, "No, .... "Brooklyn"!!!! This upheaval the Japanese-Americans/ Naturalized-Americans/ETC. was HIGHLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL!... BUT, in 1944, there was still a high number of 'flag waving patriots' that still thought this was right...ie:to 'STEM the flow of the 'Japs'! These SAME Americans, today are uttering this kind of comment;sorry for my editorial comment!
There is much sage advice given by the Judge in this flic!!!;even though he is stricken with tonsillitis-and can't talk;there is an hilarious scene where his wife is GLAD he can't speak. I'd especially want to draw you to the later scenes with Ms. Granville, and Mr. Marshall that are DEFINITELY NOT comedic! In fact, some of the teachers down here in Florida need to heed the advice of the learned Judge!
In fact, the scene where he pontificates...hey, pretty big word for moi!... about Student/Teacher 'relations' is a GREAT scene... It takes place at the bus stop when Andy is quitting school, and taking the easy way out of his troubles... He, unwittingly, had come up with a HUGE 'TALL-Tale' to the father of the Walker Twins---who are GORGEOUS!!knock-outs!.
Please watch this movie, and the sequel,"Love Laughs at Andy Hardy" ...again with Ms. Granville-even though made 2 years later, it takes place in the same 'Frosh' year of Andy Hardy. Finaaly, i'd suggest you check out the bio of Ms. Granville she IS the gal in this movie... I believe she is still alive.
