Andy Hardy’s 14th Chapter
Appears on Capitol’s Screen
By JAY CARMODY.
It has been rather longer than usual, but the:; who waited for
: the next chapter in the saga of Andy Hardy finally have been
rewarded. “Andy Hardy's Blond Trouble.” is the title of the latest
installment and it turned up today on the screen of Loews Capitol.
The chief thing to be said of it as a piece of entertainment is that
it shows how difficult it is to keep a story like that going through 14
(cnapters. Anay is mere ana so are'
the Wilde twins, Lee and Lyn, but
instead of making the opus piquant,
the presence of the three merely
makes the script irritating. So,
among the cast, are Bonita Gran
ville and Herbert Marshall, both in
important roles, but the script is so
written that it makes no difference.
"Andy Hardy’s Blond Trouble” is a
sort of routine affair, redeemed by
but one segment of dialogue. That
segment, in case anyone is inter
ested, has to do with the effort of
Andy (Mickey) to kiss Bonita Gran
Miss Granville says no, abruptly,
adds the observation, “you must
think I am terribly old-fashioned."
“Old-fashioned?” asks Mickey,
It is quite funny, and, in a way,
it is too bad that the rest of the
picture does not live up to the line.
The rest of the picture has to do
with the facts that Mickey goes to
college, that the college is the one
to which Judge Hardy went before
him, that the sudden conversion to
co-ed presents an entirely new
problem which confuses the Metro
script writers more than anyone
else connected with the picture.
Mickey’s difficulties, all played
with the Andy Hardy inflections
with which the first 13 pictures have
made the series familiar, are just
those which would be expected.
When the misunderstandings be
tween himself and the school be
come insufferable, it is his notion
to leave, a decision from which he
is saved only by the arrival on
campus of Lewis Stone, who still is
Judge Hardy and who, in this case,
is a little too opportunistically
* * * *
It is- an extremely slow and talky
script through which the principals
of “Andy Hardy’s Blond Troube”
bespeak themselves in the picture
at the Capitol. That is all right
so far as Marshall is concerned. He

Among the also older members of
the cast is Lewis Stone, Judge
Hardy through the original 13
chapters of the Andy Hardy series.
The Judge is ill on this occasion,
an illness designed to bring out the
fact that the Chinese of Brooklyn
are as loyal as any other Americans,
a point which is proved through the
acting of Keye Luke.
As a concession to the fact that
the previous Hardy pictures dedi
cated to the same theme have their
moments musical, this one' permits
one of the Wilde twins to sing.
The number is “You’d Be So Easy
to Love,” the twin who sings it, Lee.
The major and inescapable trou

Especially fine was his perform
ance of Bach's “Prelude and Fugue
in A Minor,” a work often favored
by pianists, which gave him an op
portunity to exhibit his virtuoso foot
technique. The conclusion of the
fugue, taken at a brisk pace and
played with extraordinary agility,
placed Sergt. Beard at once in the
front rank of performers. While the
rhythmical pattern of the fugue
suffered at timps from slight exag
erations of the tempo and from a
lack of certain precision in accent,
the whole manner of presentation
was a notable one. This was con
firmed later in numbers which
