Come to think of it, the actors are pretty amazing too” (Toni Mastroianna, Cleveland Press).

Big Apple, here he comes! Mickey Rooney returns as the All-American teen in this eleventh Andy Hardy film that surpassed each of the previous ten in popularity. Also back are Lewis Stone as Judge Hardy and Judy Garland in her third and final appearance as Andy’s pal, Betsy Booth. After graduating from high school, the irrepressible Andy heads for New York, giddy with visions of high finance, chic women and posh nightclubs. But the big city is tough on a small-town boy. Jobs are hard to come by. Broadway babies aren’t impressed by the boy’s gosh-and-golly charms – especially when his savings dwindle to a lone quarter. Then, too, Judge Hardy isn’t just a room away with his ever-present wisdom and moral support. Life Begins for Andy Hardy shines with the wholesome humor, swift pacing and top production values that marked the entire series. And it adds an unexpected touch: a true, heart-tugging examination of the troubles that confront an innocent lad whose dreams outweigh reality.

David Maldon (Van Johnson) nearly drowned during World War 2 – in a flood of brandy! Developing a condition known as “Liquor Recoil ,” David must avoid alcohol at all costs; the merest whiff makes him wobbly, and a quaff makes him crazy. Fortunately for David, he has a unique guardian angel watching out for him – his boss’ daughter, Mary (Elizabeth Taylor). Writer/Director Norman Krasna is famous for his modern fairy-tale romances, justly so, often building skyscrapers of screwball set-ups from one absurd element. Less noted, however, is his proclivity for wrapping the sweetness around a serious social issue. Little chance of that being overlooked in this Krasna film, the first of two Liz would do with Van Johnson, as midway through the story we veer off to directly confront racism and intolerance in post WW2 America. But don’t worry – there’s still the menace of company parties and toasts to keep the comedy coming.
