Storyline

Christmas morning in the Hardy family's living room. Andy is the first one down the stairs; he finds a small enthusiastic dog waiting for him under the tree. The rest of the family follows: Emily and her husband the judge, Aunt Milly, and Andy's sister Marian. She finds a tennis racquet and thanks her mother. Judge Hardy sits in his easy chair to open a gift while Andy runs to bring in a fishing rod wrapped up for his dad. As everyone's gathered around the patriarch, he looks toward the camera and wishes happy holidays to the audience - and thanks them for keeping the Hardys going. The rest of the family, including the dog, join in. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Hardy Christmas
29 December 2008 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Loews Christmas Greeting (1939)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

The Hardy Family (with Lewis Stone and Mickey Rooney on hand) star in this three-minute short, which shows the family coming downstairs on Christmas morning. We see them opening presents and then they gather around to thank the viewer for keeping them coming back. I'm really not sure what the point of this short was but I'm going to guess that since this series was so popular people in the theater might have gotten a kick out of the wishful thankfulness of the family. The thing certainly moves well enough and features Rooney up to his usual antics.
