Love Laughs at Andy Hardy is a 1946 American film released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, directed by Willis Goldbeck and starring Mickey Rooney and Lewis Stone.
The film is also known under its American promotional title Uncle Andy Hardy.
This was the next-to-last Andy Hardy film produced. The final installment, “Andy Hardy Comes Home”, would be made 12 years later (1958) in a failed attempt to revive the franchise.
This film was also noteworthy for being the last to feature veteran character actor Lewis Stone as “Judge Hardy”. Stone continued his career for the next seven years, making 10 more films until his death in 1953 at age 73.
