The Hardys Ride High is another in the enjoyable Judge Hardy's Family series
8 June 2015 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this, the sixth in the Judge Hardy's Family series. Seems the family may have inherited some money so they go to Detroit to claim their share. Of course, Andy has delusions of grandeur which he enacts quickly when a supposed relative takes him out on the town and he sees chorus girls for the first time! I'll stop there and just say that I liked most of the film especially when some of the focus is on spinster Aunt Milly and her dressing up and going out with someone she likes very much. Mickey Rooney, as always, is his usual exuberant self. Oh, and what he tells Polly at the end! So on that note, I highly recommend The Hardys Ride High.
