The Genius of My Father's House
- Doug Daugherty
This is one film I shall always remember simply because it fit my thinking of the day. In Black and White it spoke volumns simply because it would always be remembered as a B&W dream when thinking about it. Mr. Preston always impressed me with his enunciation and clarity. There would be saying, "Huh?" if he was talking to you. I appreciate the fact he usually spoke this way and would only hope his example would shine throughout classrooms around the nation. Pure, chrystalline and totally unmistakeable. (no spell checke here) I am an old man now or else, getting there quicker than I like. My mind is literally full of pictures and times past. Mostly in color but this movie still stirs me in black and white. A classic to me. My memories go back into the 40's and up. A different era. The first color film I ever saw was, "The Wizard of Oz" and it scared the hell out of me. Had to sleep with a night lite for a time. So, if this gets read then, so be it. I never write Hollywood or its stars about anything figuring everybody is too busy to pay attention to what I may say. However, I am adamant about re-viewing and appreciating which came out when I was a young man of 16. Thank you. Doug Daugherty 1517 Gardenette Dr, Apt 4, Jamestown, ND, 58401
My Father's House: A TV Movie from 1975
- Mike Zimmerman
You return to your father's house. You get up for a late night snack and have a crippling heart attack. No one can hear you. What do you do? How about a flashback over your lifetime growing up in that house with the man who made you what you are? That is what this film brings home to the viewer.Cliff Robertson is the adult who thinks about his life, and Robert Preston comes to life as the father of his youth. It is filled with love, suspense, and humor.This film is unavailable from any source I can find. I even wrote to Mr. Robertson, hoping for some charity. I can now only rely on TCM to find it for me. Thanks. mz
