You're Only Young Once

You're Only Young Once is a 1937 comedy film directed by George B. Seitz. It is the Andy Hardy film, with Lewis Stone permanently replacing Lionel Barrymore as Judge Hardy, and Mickey Rooney appearing as his son Andy. MGM replaced Barrymore and Spring Byington (with Fay Holden), since both were too expensive for the sequel's modest budget. Only Rooney, Cecilia Parker and Sara Haden, as Aunt Milly, remained from the original cast.[1]

The Hardy family goes to Catalina for a two-week vacation, where Judge Hardy (Lewis Stone) tries to catch a swordfish, Marian (Cecilia Parker) falls in love with a married lawyer/lifeguard, and Andy goes around with a "sophisticated" girl. They return home to Carvel to find that by having endorsed a note for Frank Redmond (Frank Craven), Judge Hardy might lose all their property to Hoyt Wells (Selmer Jackson). Luckily, through an old law that Judge Hardy learned about while fishing with Capt. Swenson (Charles Judels), their home is saved and Hoyt Wells is run out of town.
