Time for another look at some of the Dad’s that populated the films we love and in some cases revere. Maybe even a favorite or two from TV.
Who didn’t love the scene with Roy and his little guy sitting around the dining table as Roy faces the prospect of having to meet his fears head on aboard the Orca.
“Give us a kiss.” ……….. “Why?” …………..”Cause I need it.”
Who better to play Pa Kent and offer sound advice to a growing super hero then Glenn Ford.
Senior and Junior ……. The Bonners as played by Preston and McQueen.
A couple of Johnny’s. Weissmuller and Sheffield.
Learning the family business first hand. Chan and number 2 son, Jimmy. Sidney Toler and Victor Sen Yung.
“The camera is right over there son. ” John and Patrick Wayne.
Not necessarily a Dad to look up to, Coburn did cop an Oscar as the father from hell to Nick Nolte.
I’ll close with a couple TV favorites during my formative years.
Happy Father`s Day to my own dad.
