Crazy Credits

Instead of "The End," this film concludes with a title card saying "To Be Continued." But there were no further Hardy films and no continuation. See more »

Alternate Versions

Originally, the print ended as Mickey Rooney accepts a judgeship at Carvel and shows him on the judge's bench with the words "to be continued" superimposed on the frame at the end. This is the version currently shown on the Turner Classic Movies channel, but it was for press previews only. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayor changed their minds and decided not to continue the series, so the version released to the public simply ended without reference to Andy Hardy becoming a judge. See more »

I love Andy Hardy Comes Home
26 October 2005 | by madformickey05See all my reviews

Andy Hardy comes home is one of my favorite Andy Hardy films. I also really love the music in it. The story is great as well. It just gives me a warm feeling to see all of the Hardy family together again. Of course, Judge Hardy is gone and that leaves a sad feeling inside. When Andy keeps going to the place where he had his mad to mad talks with his father, I get teary eyed. There was not a better series than the Andy Hardy series. This serious made Mickey Rooney a major star and has remained a major star since. For a sweet, enjoyable evening, check out Andy Hardy Comes Home. It's not quite like the original but still very pleasant. Also, Mickey Rooney's real life son plays Andy Jr.
