comedy and drama too!!

Love this movie. A rare opportunity to laugh and also get misty eyed listening Tracy express his feelings about this chapter in the life of a father and a family.Does anyone remember the scene where Bennett and Tracy meet with the caterer and give their address?I could have sworn they said Fairview, MA. I couldn't figure out why the writer would choose that town because it is such a small town -- really more like a village.Thanks.
Wedding planning never changes!
You simply cannot find a truer picture of wedding planning than this one! It is as true today, as it was 63 years ago when this film was made and it is still ridiculous! The scene where Spencer Tracy as her father, ascends the stairs to hurry the bride, Elizabeth Taylor, along to the church will take your breath away. La Liz turns and in her wedding gown looks at her father and she is drop dead gorgeous. Frankly, I have yet to see another bride, real or in film, that is as beautiful as Elizabeth was at that moment. Prior to that moment, Tracy is downstairs and his wife, Joan Bennett, descends the stairs and she is probably the most beautiful mother-of-the-bride you will ever see. Two generations of women, equally as beautiful! Wow! FYI to "noodles" (comment below): Nicky Hilton married the most beautiful woman in the world, Elizabeth Taylor, and spent their first night as husband and wife downstairs in a casino while Elizabeth was in the honeymoon suite, alone all night! That was in real life! It's no wonder they divorced less than nine months later!
Buckley's marrying the most beautiful woman on earth, and he wants to go fishing on his honeymoon?
Leo Carroll's scenes are quite amusing

Bennett could not be more different then when she paired with Tracy in "Me and My Gal" a generation earlier, but the actor's actor Tracy remained Tracy, and always seemed to be, save his role in "Captains Courageous" and a few other lesser films. This film has a lot to offer, including a perfect church wedding, a spooky dream sequence, a bit reminiscing about past boyfriends ("The Radical" and his "UNFAIR" sign being one), and a few repeatables like "as soon as you get someone else worrying, you stop worrying yourself."
the vest scene
the scene of tracey trying to fit into his vest from his wedding is reason alone worth watching this movie. very charming; taylor is, of course, gorgeous. it sure was a different time.
Delightful Little Comedy.
I love this movie! Great chemistry between Taylor and Tracy. Fun storyline.
While some of the movies from the golden age, don't age so well, this one is a current as today. The chemistry between Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett and Elizabeth Taylor is seamless. They really look and act like they could have been a real family. Tracy is at his relaxed best--what an actor, and while it's always enjoyable to see Elizabeth on the screen, Joan Bennett is really top-notch, playing to the hilt the kind of role that Myrna Loy made a staple in the 30's, and it's almost as hard to take your eyes of the beautiful Bennett as it is the tantalizing Taylor. A really fun movie with a great supporting cast throughout.

Delightful comedy. Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor as his daughter are perfect in their roles. Good supporting cast.
