Storyline

Christmas morning in the Hardy family's living room. Andy is the first one down the stairs; he finds a small enthusiastic dog waiting for him under the tree. The rest of the family follows: Emily and her husband the judge, Aunt Milly, and Andy's sister Marian. She finds a tennis racquet and thanks her mother. Judge Hardy sits in his easy chair to open a gift while Andy runs to bring in a fishing rod wrapped up for his dad. As everyone's gathered around the patriarch, he looks toward the camera and wishes happy holidays to the audience - and thanks them for keeping the Hardys going. The rest of the family, including the dog, join in. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Happy Holidays from the Hardys
25 December 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Opening with an orchestral version of "Jingle Bells", MGM released this three minute short featuring "The Hardy Family" to wish their Loews theater patrons a Merry Christmas. Films like "The Wizard of Oz", "Ninotchka", and "Gone with the Wind" made 1939 a very "Green Christmas" season for the studio, with box office king Mickey Rooney and his "The Hardy Family" film series giving everyone a run for their money. Though listed as 1939, the short may have been seen in 1938.

Unfortunately shown in black-and-white, we begin with a typically excited Mickey Rooney (as Andy Hardy) running downstairs on Christmas morning. He gets just what he wanted, an extremely well-trained dog. As the two yelp and play together, the rest of the family arrives in robes and pajamas. Fatherly judge Lewis Stone unwraps a new fishing pole, then wishes viewers the happiest of holidays from "The Hardy Family". Audiences are thanked for their patronage, which would continue...

**** Loews Christmas Greeting (1939) George B. Seitz ~ Mickey Rooney, Lewis Stone, Fay Holden, Cecilia Parker
