Courtship Of Eddie's Father, The (1962)
Starring: Glenn Ford, Shirley Jones, Dina Merrill, Roberta Sherwood, Stella Stevens
Director: Vincente Minnelli
Category: Comedy, Classics, Classics
Studio: Warner Bros.
118 mins



Every boy needs a mother...even if Dad has to marry her!

Who will be the next Mrs. Corbett? Will it be the chic designer? The Miss Montana Pageant hopeful? The headstrong lady across the hall? It's a big decision for any boy to make for his recently widowed father!

Like father, like son. You'll like 'em both when renowned child actor and future Oscar winner Ronny Howard portrays Eddie and Glenn Ford is his dad. Vincente Minnelli (Gigi) directs, using his flair and vivid colors and balancing the film's humor with the real sense of loss a family feels over a loved one's passing. Shirley Jones, Dina Merrill and Stella Stevens portrays the prospects under Eddie's self-appointed scrutiny. The amiable Courtship continued years later with a same-titled TV series starring Bill Bixby.
