What is your favorite classic movie about fathers?


  1. My favourite movie fathers are Charles Boyer in "The Happy Time", Edward G. Robinson in "Our Vines Have Tender Grapes, Spencer Tracy in "Father of the Bride" and Alastair Sim in "Stage Fright".

    1. I haven't seen HAPPY TIME and I've only known Charles Boyer as a lover or a menacing character. It will be great to see him as a father. Thanks for the recommendation.

      No wait! I just remembered. Boyer was the father of Marius in the Leslie Caron film FANNY. I have seen him as a dad. Still, I need to watch something new. Thanks again.
