This ostensibly lighthearted film about Spencer Tracy's Kafkaesque attempts to bring off his daughter's wedding is one of the bleakest films of a bleak decade. Full Review

Spencer Tracy underplays the comedy to good effect, and Joan Bennett and Elizabeth Taylor are beautiful and efficient. Full Review

Product Description:

The comic trials and tribulations that beset a family, mostly the father, prior to their daughter's wedding day. Taylor and Tracy give wonderful performances and it's easy to understand why this was remade in 1991. The colorized version doesn't add much. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best Picture, Best Actor-Spencer Tracy, Best Screenplay.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Father of the Bride
"I would like to say a few words about weddings," a weary man says from the middle of a muddle of rice and scattered bottles. What follows is a warm, witty look at what it means to be Father of the Bride.
Spencer Tracy is the father and Elizabeth Taylor the bride in this lively Vincente Minnelli-directed classic. Taylor is glowingly showcased - and reflected in three mirrors when first seen in a wedding gown. Tracy's performance captures every loving father's exasperations and joys as the day approaches. It also captured the fourth of his nine* Best Actor Academy Award* nominations. The film also earned nominations** for Best Picture and Screenplay. Here comes the bride, there goes dad's wallet - and everyone's heart. What sparkling fun!
