In the final scene where Judge Hardy raises the roof on Andy's convertible and
crushes his top hat, there are a couple of goofs. First, the button he pushes
to raise the roof is to the right of the driver yet just a few minutes earlier, in an identical car, Andy pushed a button to raise the roof and it was on the left. Second, the top hat Judge Hardy is wearing is shiny and new. But after it's flattened, it's replaced by an old beat-up version that is noticeably different. Obviously rather than damage a good top hat, they simply switched the hats between takes. See more »
I don't care what kind of clothes the ancient Greeks used to wear. I ain't gonna appear in public without any pants!
Jimmy McMahon, I'll have you know the ancient Greeks didn't even know what pants were.
Yeah well maybe the ancient Greeks weren't knock-kneed.

Andy Hardy's Private Secretary has one of the title characters graduating from high school though not without complications
Before I review the movie proper, since It's a Wonderful Life is my favorite movie, I had to mention a player from there making his film debut in this one: Todd Karns who plays a Land family member named Harry-the same first name he would eventually have in IAWL when he became a Bailey. He has a sis named Kathryn-the same first name as the lady playing her, Kathryn Grayson-also making her debut. Andy tries to help them, as the family is poor, with bettering their lives but he makes some mistakes along the way. Oh, and Andy and girlfriend Polly are supposed to graduate in this one though because of what happens to Andy involving his teacher-his own Aunt Milly, that may not happen to him. Let's just say there's some things she won't do and leave it at that. Ms. Grayson does some nice opera tunes but she's really entertaining when she also does a Cole Porter song! There's more drama than laughs here but there's still plenty to enjoy in Andy Hardy's Private Secretary. P.S. This was the first time in the beginning credits of this series when the names of the actors weren't printed in front of their portrait of-from left to right-Mickey Rooney, Lewis Stone, Fay Holden, and Cecilia Parker. That was because Ms. Parker was absent here, for some reason.
