Andy Hardy's Private Secretary #

Released 2/21/1941

Description: Andy's gone and done it this time. All set to graduate from high school and he flunks his English exam -- in spite of the fact that Aunt Milly is his teacher, and that the Judge has gone to all the problem of getting him his very own personal secretary (Kathryn Grayson in her screen debut). What makes this Andy Hardy movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter, "even better than the wildly cheered Love Finds Andy Hardy?" It should be Mickey Rooney's irresistible charm. Or should it be the perfected plot of Andy juggling his steady love (Polly Benedict) with his growing affections for other girl? Or perhaps it's the nonstop laughs Rooney generates with such antics as trying to purchase ladies' hose or letting the Judge take a spin in his jalopy in the pouring rain. Whatever the case, here's your possibility to return to a simpler and happier time with the family America loved to love.

The Return of October Reviews:

I have nothing vs the another reviews, but they do not seem to convey the message that this film is well-worth watching. Almost anything Glenn Ford was in was worth watching and for that reason I watched this one morning and was thoroughly delighted. The pace of the film is quite lively and the different actors all competent in their different roles. The direction and editing were also nice and to receive all that in a film spells just what you wish in a movie - entertainment! There are a substantial number of humorous moments, lines and scenes. The viewer gets drawn into the happenings just as do the cast which is their role in the movie. I have seen almost all of the movies starring Glenn Ford and this is not a typical "Glenn Ford" film and was not on any "must see" list of mine. Although he performed admirably, any number of folks should have played his role. The value of this film is in its production and enjoyability.


Pleasing piece of yesteryear, a whimsical, contrived, and often extremely silly comedy from (of all people) director Joseph H. Lewis. Terry Moore is brash and appealing testing a headstrong, stubborn eighteen-year old woman facing a sanity hearing after her boyfriend, a campus psychologist, publishes a paper detailing her 'delusional' belief that a racehorse called October is her beloved deceased uncle come back to life; her relatives, greedy sorts who have been slash out of the last will of the lass's eccentric aunt, hope to place the child away, but all she really wants is to race the horse in the Kentucky Derby! Typically overstuffed screenplay by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank has lots of lickety-split talk, a courtroom sequence played at breakneck speed, but much affection for its characters as well. Moore, with her red hair, wide eyes and fashionable jodhpurs, looks like Nicole Kidman's sassy child sister; she often struggles with her reactions, and she's so alert that at times she appears to be staring blankly, however she acquits herself nicely with this role, and her romantic scenes with Glenn Ford are sweetly screwball. The large race finale isn't given the same care as the rest of the picture (it's pushed along and then slash a bit short), but then this isn't a teary, sentimental piece and the sub-plots are neatly tied up. Nice fun! **1/2 from ****


When I came across this video (on the old GoodTimes budget label) in a Half Price Ebooks in Tacoma, WA, my initial shock came from the fact that the movie was directed by none another than cult auteur Joseph H. Lewis (GUN CRAZY, THE BIG COMBO). The fact that it was shot in Technicolor and starred one of Columbia's two contract leading boys (the another being William Holden) makes me assume that this gotta have been a prestige picture for the studio that year. In all honesty, it's not very good, with a contrived courtroom finale that recalls the previous year's MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET for all the wrong reasons. A brief synopsis of the relevant plot points: greedy relatives are trying to cover up the fact that they've squandered a dead aunt's fortune by getting niece Terry Moore declared insane, based on the fact that she thinks her horse is her reincarnated uncle (isn't it funny how in movies of this period folks can be declared insane on the flimsiest of premises? maybe not so funny, though, if you were Francis Farmer). Glenn Ford is a doctor of philosophy who is researching the relationships between animals and humans (whatever) and his boss at the university thinks that a paper he's writing about Terry's 'delusion' will be a large seller and bring in lots of publicity and cash for their foundering school (yeah, maybe in the Bizarro Universe). Terry Moore is pretty but not a very nice actress, over-emoting in her scenes with the horse to the mission that you start to think that, Yeah, this chick IS crazy. The late, nice Glenn Ford is, as always, charming and essentially decent, though he hasn't at this mission totally developed the comedic skills that would serve him much better in the '60s. There are some trademark Joseph H. Lewis shots here and there (early in the movie there's a view of Terry and her uncle up in a stand observing a horse on a track shot from a ground lvl POV, framed by a white wooden railing; a lengthy automobile conversation between Moore and Ford recalls, if vaguely, related scenes in GUN CRAZY between Peggy Cummins and John Dall), but is of interest on a stylistic lvl only for completists of the director's work. Still, that trained cat is cute nice (though it does look slightly narcotized in some of its scenes).
