Storyline

Andy is going to Wainwright College as did his father. He sees a pretty blonde on the train and he is alternately winked at or slapped every time he sees her. Andy is clueless. On the train Andy meets Kay and Dr. Standish who are both headed for Wainwright. Andy likes Kay, but Dr. Standish also seems to take an interest in her. Things are going well at College with Kay, but the blonde is nice one minute and ignores Andy the next. When Andy finds out that the blonde are identical twins, he tries to help them out with their father but gets caught at their rooming house after midnight.

Andy Goes To College
17 May 2018 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

This installment of the Andy Hardy series of films picks up where the last one left off. Andy is off to Wainwright College. On the train ride there, he meets another frosh-a female (Bonita Granville as Kay Wilson)-who tells him Wainwright is now coed (how convenient for young Hardy!). He also meets a flirty blonde whose erratic behavior is very confusing.

When Andy arrives at Wainwright, he deals with the usual frosh concerns, like uncertainty , then settles into his usual problems-girls and money. Kay is a challenge for small-town Andy; she seems to like older men. The problematic blonde (L. Wilde as L. Walker) brings out the chivalry in Andy.

The theme of this film is maturity. The rather subdued action fits the theme, with Andy becoming circumspect, learning to consider the perspectives of others.

Herbert Marshall acts with restraint as a man who may play a significant part in Andy's education.
