Jake, the ranch hand's daughter, is played by Virginia Weidler, who sang "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" in The Philadelphia Story (1940). She and Bonita Granville are my favorite MCMXXXVIII child actresses.
*A couple of months back my TiVo tricked me into watching You're Only Young Once, a Hardy Family movie about a vacation to Catalina Island. I later found out that it was released in December of '37, so I didn't do a write-up. My TiVo recently tried to get me to watch The Hardys Ride High from 1939, but once bitten, twice shy.
Standard Hardy cast:
Lewis Stone as Judge Hardy
Mickey Rooney as Andy Hardy
Anne Rutherford as Polly Benedict
