Father of the Bride

1950 Rated NR 1hr 32m

Spencer Tracy renders one of his most endearing roles as Stanley Banks, the befuddled title character in this charming comedy directed by Vincente Minnelli. Stanley gets caught up in the barely controlled mayhem surrounding his only daughter's (a ravishing Elizabeth Taylor) wedding. Class struggle, premarital jitters and a whole lot of grumpy comedy mark this as a classic film you shouldn't miss.
