The scene at the beginning of the movie shows Andy reminiscing about giving Betsy Booth his music pin. This is actually a scene from the movie Babes in Arms. Mickey Rooney needed to dub Betsy's name and it's obvious his lips don't match what he says. See more »

Instead of "The End," this film concludes with a title card saying "To Be Continued." But there were no further Hardy films and no continuation. See more »
Like another person who commented, I feel this film leaves too many unanswered questions as to what happened in the years between 1947 and 1958. It was fun to see a few of the original characters (Fay Holden, as Mrs. Hardy, had aged very well!), but the original flavor of the Hardy series was completely lost. The film does come to a satisfying conclusion, however.
One comment regarding archive footage used in the film: I've seen it said repeatedly that the footage of Mickey and Judy was from "Love Finds Andy Hardy", when actually the footage was taken from "Babes in Arms" and adapted with "dubbed-over" names. The footage seems to indicate that Andy and Betsy Booth were more romantically involved than they were in the earlier Hardy films. However, Mickey and Judy are always a treat to watch, whatever the film clip.
Although this film provides some closure, it seems it was intended to begin a new generation of Andy Hardy films; thankfully, film makers left well enough alone after this entry.
