Andy Hardy, now a grown man with a wife and children, returns to his hometown on a business trip and finds himself getting mixed up in local politics.
Ann Rutherford decided not to return as Polly Benedict. The original idea was to have Polly marry Andy, but once Rutherford said no, the character of Jane was created.
A factory always brings with it a lot of undesirable people such as transients and floaters and the like.
Near the end of the movie, when the family gathers outside to meet the townspeople, Chuck comes out of the front door twice.
Instead of "The End," this film concludes with a title card saying "To Be Continued." But there were no further Hardy films and no continuation.
Originally, the print ended as Mickey Rooney accepts a judgeship at Carvel and shows him on the judge's bench with the words "to be continued" superimposed on the frame at the end. This is the version currently shown on the Turner Classic Movies channel, but it was for press previews only. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayor changed their minds and decided not to continue the series, so the version released to the public simply ended without reference to Andy Hardy becoming a judge.
