This is the sixth in the series and boy were they cranking them out! They had a successful formula and they were running with it.
The Hardys find they are due to receive a $2 million inheritance, once they take care of some formalities. They pack up the family and travel to Detroit--the big city.
Of course every family member sees his dreams coming true. Andy has plans to become a millionaire playboy. Daughter Marian plans to spend her dollars on dresses and plusher living quarters. Even Judge Hardy catches the fever.
From the beginning, the viewer knows what the final result will be. But there are some surprises--especially regarding the judge, who feels responsible for the well-being of the entire clan.
As in every installment, Andy and Judge Hardy have their man-to-man talk, which yields benefits for them both. And like every episode, basic small-town American values are affirmed.
