Just a few of the many Movie Dads that came to mind on the one day of the year when we tip our hat to all the Fathers out there. Do you know all the films?
Lewis Stone and “The Mick.”
“Come on Dad.” Glenn Ford and Ronny Howard.
Could George Hamilton really be the son of Robert Mitchum? Seems a stretch to me.
Jimmy Stewart and some fatherly advice about the ripening of fruit. The ending of this one gets me every time. Tissue please.
Learning the ropes with Dad.
Henry and Jane. Life imitating art?
The ultimate Father figure while manning up on the trail.
A mighty long shadow for young Michael to get out from under.
Even the crazy Dads get a tribute. With his back to us we have Donald Pleasence teaching son Bruce Dern how to deliver the righteousness of the Lord to the wickedness of heathens like Heston. I gotta say that’s one heck of a casting dream. Pleasence and Dern!
ok here’s a front shot of Donald.
One of my favorite Father and son teams at the movies. Warner and Keye. “Hi’ya Pop.”
Safe in the arms of Atticus. A nice place to be.
