Skidding


Skidding
   Aurania Rouverol's mild three-act comedy opened on 21 May 1928 at the Bijou Theatre for 448 performances, capturing family life in its depiction of the relationship between a father, Judge Hardy, and his daughter, Marion, who breaks with her fiancé to aid her father's reelection bid. In 1937, a motion picture version titled A Family Affair, starring Lionel Barrymore, inspired a series of popular Hardy family films with Lewis Stone replacing Barrymore and the focus shifted to Mickey Rooney as the incorrigible teenage son, Andy Hardy.
