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.
