Does anybody here understand the resolution of "You're Only Young Once" (1937)?


Recommended Posts

It's a pretty good start to the Hardy family series of films, but the resolution is rather strange. Is that Judge Hardy flying a plane into the sheriff's sale? And I didn't quite get what was going on with using Civil War era money to buy public property. Other than that it's a straightforward prewar piece of Americana.

I either haven't seen it or forgotten too much about it to even guess at an anser. Confederate money was already pretty worthless soon after the war, according to that documentary known as Gone With the Wind! So I'm surprised chracters were using it in a movie set in the '30s.

I think the term that was used was "Civil War era script" - I'll go back and watch it again. They didn't say Confederate money. You are right - that was considered worthless outside the Confederacy. So I assume this "script" was some kind of Union money. At any rate, the whole issue was vague.
