Movie Info

The title tells the story in this fourth of MGM's "Hardy Family" series. Judge Hardy (Lewis Stone) takes his family to the Wide Open Spaces when a friend has legal difficulties over water rights. Andy Hardy (Mickey Rooney) thinks he can pass as a westerner, which results in saddle sores for the bethumped young Hardy and (hopefully) laughs for the audience. Andy's sister Marian (Cecilia Parker, who before her MGM days had been a western movie ingenue) falls in love with a handsome cowboy hero (Gordon Jones) who turns out to be a jerk. And Virginia Weidler plays a girl named Jake: ha ha. Out West with the Hardys goes through the series' usual paces with the novelty of an outdoorsy backdrop.

...Rooney's smart aleck patter, comic smugness and blithe confidence trumps the generic script...
