Failing to locate her himself, he offers money to his teenage son, Andy, if he can locate her.

Took a special interest in the Hardy Family Series. Someone once said Andy Hardy's boyhood is the one Mayer wanted, Mayer was a Republican and the highest paid man in America when this film came out which is surprising as all the Andy Hardy movies are oozing with New Deal era political correctness.
