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 »

In this Andy Hardy installment, Andy is less girl crazy than in others. That is probably due to a shift in focus to Kathryn Grayson, making her noteworthy debut as Andy's classmate. It is understandable that MGM would want their newest surefire star to make a big splash in a vehicle that would guarantee plenty of viewers.
Judge Hardy teaches Andy lessons in charity and citizenship while assisting a family fallen on difficult times. Andy's classmates-Kathryn and Harry Land-are given roles in the high school graduation festivities as part of this project. Naturally, we get to hear Kathryn's amazing singing voice.
Andy, who is wrapped up in every aspect of the ceremonies, spreads himself too thin, but Kathryn becomes his private secretary, helping him with his organization. Still, he manages to bungle important details, causing consternation and some major problems.
Miss Grayson holds her own, acting-wise, with the rest of the cast, and her singing voice is a singular joy that surely must have wowed audiences in 1941. Still, she lacks the effervescence of another singing starlet who graces Andy Hardy films-Judy Garland, who would match Mickey Rooney's energy and hep-cred in various film pairings.
