In the fifteenth Andy Hardy film, he--like so many other military men--returns home after the war. During his time away, he has been thinking a lot about Kay (Bonita Granville), who is still at college. For her part, she has been thinking a lot about him since their last film, two years earlier. Each has a big announcement for the other.
A side story has Andy being matched with an attractive Amazon (Dorothy Ford) who serves to further emphasize his diminutive stature. They make the best of it and enjoy their evening at the frosh dance.
This film is not one of the better Hardy family stories, though it contains the last man-to-man chat between Judge Hardy (Lewis Stone) and Andy.
Dorothy Ford steals the show with her vivacious personality. Andy's crisis du jour eventually fizzles to nothingness when he spots the next comely coed.
There is a serious subject hidden inside this episode--the fact that the passage of years (and the experiences in those years) can result in unexpected expectations from lovers or spouses. But the matter is dispatched with quickly as if Andy were still a younger teen.
