Life Begins For Andy Hardy went pretty close into making Betsy and Andy into a more serious couple, though the scene was very bittersweet. It seems they went for Babes in Arms to keep the flashback more lighthearted and also considering how much Andy Hardy Comes Home depended on nostalgia fumes to keep it afloat. I agree the dubbing was terrible. Andy Hardy Comes Home is so far beneath even the weakest of the mainline MGM series that it doesn't surprise me that they cheated in that manner. For me, the cheesy stock music tracks did the most to pull me out of the movie though much of the film itself has me mistake it with a made for TV special.
