On vacation with his family on California's Catalina Island, Andy Hardy (Mickey Rooney) falls head over swim fins for a sophisticated young beauty (Eleanor Lynn). Judge Hardy (Lewis Stone) warns his son that she is too fast for him. But to Andy, that just means he should run after his golden girl a little faster! This sequel to A Family Affair, the enormously successful first Hardy family film, introduces the cast most often associated with the series (only Rooney, Cecilia Parker and Sara Haden appeared in the prior picture). Moviegoers took the whole Hardy clan to its heart – especially Rooney's irrepressible Andy – and thronged popcorn palaces to share more warmhearted father-and-son wisdom leavened by laughs.
