Young Andy Hardy (Mickey Rooney) journeys to New York with his father (Lewis Stone) and close friend Betsy Booth (Judy Garland), where he meets beautiful blonde socialite Daphne (Diana Lewis). Andy immediately forgets about Polly Benedict (Ann Rutherford), his girlfriend back home, and falls head over heels for Daphne.

No problem is too big to resolve in 85-plus minutes before you’re off to Andy’s next misadventure.   Andy Hardy Meets Debutante is more of the same: Andy’s a cocky shit that tries to charm a girl (Diana Lewis, the debutante in question), gets sage advice from his father, and shares some great scenes with Betsy (Judy Garland, once more capable of coaxing more depth of feeling out of Rooney than any other co-star). Preachy, heavily sentimental, and with regressive ideas about gender and f” read more
