The Courtship of Eddie's Father

1963 NR

After Tom Corbett's (Glenn Ford) wife dies, Tom's young son Eddie (Ronny Howard) has definite ideas about who he wants his father to marry -- namely, Elizabeth (Shirley Jones), the kindly young divorcee living across the hall. Tom, however, is dating frosty socialite Rita (Dina Merrill), and that could put a crimp in Eddie's plans. Directed by Vincente Minnelli, the movie spawned a popular TV series in the early 1970s.
