Oscar-winner Spencer Tracy ("Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?," "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde") received his fourth nomination as an exasperated banker who has misgivings about his engaged daughter's groom. Oscar-winner Elizabeth Taylor ("Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," "National Velvet") portrays the daughter. With Oscar-nominees Billie Burke ("The Wizard of Oz") and Russ Tamblyn ("Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," "Peyton Place"). Directed by Academy Award-winning director Vincente Minnelli ("An American in Paris," "Gigi") and produced by Academy Award-recipient Pandro S. Berman ("Ivanhoe," "Top Hat"). Nominated for Best Picture and Screenplay, this hilarious look at family chaos spawned a sequel. Although remade in 1991 with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton, this classic is considered by many as the best.

Critics Consensus: With a terrific script, great performances from Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor, and assured direction from Vincent Minnelli, Father of the Bride endures as a sparkling comedy of its era.
