After World War II, however, the mood of the country became more cynical and the films became derided for their corniness. The one movie made immediately after the war was a flop, as was a nostalgic reunion movie made in the 1950s. Despite their enormous success in their heyday, the movies, aside from those starring Creator/JudyGarland, haven’t been seen much since.

Added DiffLines:

* StatusQuoIsGod: No matter what romantic complications ensue, Andy ends each film in the arms of Polly, his regular steady girlfriend. Averted in the end by fiat of the actress herself. Ann Rutherford refused to return for the revival, ''Andy Hardy Comes Home'', because she thought the HighSchoolSweethearts trope was unrealistic.


* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The series format wasn't really nailed down until the fourth film, ''Love Finds Andy Hardy'', so the first three have some unusual aspects in retrospect. Also, several characters were [[TheOtherDarrin recast]] after the first film.
