Vater der Braut: Directed by Vincente Minnelli. With Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett, Elizabeth Taylor, Don Taylor. The father of a young woman deals with the emotional pain of her getting married, along with the financial and organizational trouble of arranging the wedding.

“This film is billed as a comedy but to me it worked more as a drama. There are a few funny scenes but most of all I was moved by the poignancy of the father (Tracy) as he prepares to give away his daughter in marriage. His pride, stubborness, and insecurities were played to great effect. Taylor looks perfect as the bride and her acting is also fairly convincing. The supporting cast, especially the caterer played by Leo G. Carrol, are also almost uniformly good. I didnu0026#39;t find this film as funny as some other people but like I said I enjoyed the drama aspects. Recommended, 7/10. The vintage newsreels on the DVD are also a nice touch.”
