Audience Reviews for The Hard Way

  • Jan 08, 2008
    Not quite as good as "The Man I Love" but Ida offers her usual superior performance, if a stronger actress with more musical talent than Joan Leslie, Judy Garland would have been ideal, had played the other sister this would have been a better film. Gladys George steals her too few scenes.
