Product Description


Cary Grant's penultimate feature before retirement was this cheerful 1964 effort to overturn his career-long image of urbane sophistication. As the unshaven, messy misanthrope Walter Eckland, a World War II-era beach bum who monitors Japanese air activity for the Australian navy in exchange for booze, Grant makes a convincingly hard-bitten, hard-drinking antihero. Until, that is, a pretty French schoolmistress (Leslie Caron) and her seven little charges (all girls) survive a nearby plane crash and invade Eckland's raunchy isolation. Directed by 1960s hit-maker Ralph Nelson (The Lilies of the Field, Charly), Father Goose is a glossy comedy that also does justice to its more suspenseful scenes (a deadly snakebite suffered by Caron's character is especially memorable) and leaves plenty of room for Grant to indulge in some entertaining if atypical screen behavior. All in all, this is a minor treat in the actor's magnificent filmography. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, but there is one part of the ... July 13 2014
Great movie, but there is one part of the movie that bothers me- when Carry Grant hits the woman (slaps her across the face)... he should have never done that; I understand why he did, but he still should not have, and it's for this reason I reduced the movie by one star.

My family and I love this movie because it is funny and scary. I would recommend it to people who like Cary Grant and are familiar with his other many good movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of movie fun. May 20 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fun older movie with a pair of lead stars who obviously enjoy and respect each other's company. While the plot is a bit of a stretch, if one looks beyond the obvious inanity of the story line and instead enjoys the performances by a superb Cary Grant supported by an equally superb Leslie Caron, there are far worse ways one could spend 90 minutes. This is simply innocuous entertainment in the grand old style. Modern movie goers will likely hate it, but for those who wish a pleasant diversion and some light entertainment, this is not at all a bad choice.

I choose this movie because I had watched it many years ago on a B&W television set and wanted to see it again. Cary Grant and Leslie Caron and the children played their parts excellently and with style. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys WWII classics without the war-time violence, graphic detail and rough language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cary Grant at his best Dec 31 2013

Awesome movie - Cary and Leslie had real chemistry; school children were cute and fit their parts well. The boat scenes were a tad unrealistic, but if you ignore that - you've got a winner - comedy and drama together at it's best.

I first watched it with my dad and love it for sentimental reasons since he long ago past away but I feel he is near me when I Watch it. It is also a family movie which for me is quite important as I often have children from a few months to late teens in my house. Cary Grant and Leslie caron make a lovely team.
