Willian Holden stars as a vagabond and confirmed bachelor who likes life just the way it is--free, easy and rootless. His five adopted kids, however, see things a bit differently and are constantly trying to set him up with eligible bachelorettes, leading to all manner of comedic and romantic mayhem.
FATHER IS A BACHELOR is a pleasant throwback to the "rural" comedies of the 1930s. William Holden plays Johnny Rutledge, a philosophical hobo to whom fishing is the only reason for living. Rutledge is forced to take a few jolts of responsibility when he crosses the path of five orphans. The kids decide to "adopt" Johnny and find him a bride--preferably small-town girl Prudence Millett (Colleen Gray). Charles Winninger steals the film from everyone--even those five urchins--as a medicine-show charlatan named Professor Mordecai Ford. One of the children is played by Billy Gray, of FATHER KNOWS BEST fame.
