Happy Fathers Day Weekend + Great Father Movies to Watch!!!

Whether you spend this Fathers Day weekend... going to Church, Golfing, Grilling, Playing Horseshoe, Checkers, Watching a Movie, or just Talking over Lunch or on the Phone... if you are blessed to be together, then Sharing Time with your Father on Father's Day is Greater than any Gift, especially Ties!!! (I know because I asked mine - and like most Fathers, he'd much rather have Tools!)

If you have a chance to sit back and relax... may I suggest these four TV Movies:

1. )

Dad's Home - *NEW - Premieres this Week-end on the Hallmark Channel! Stars David James Elliott from JAG. It's about a workaholic ad agency executive who has lost his wife and is then fired from his job. He soon becomes a full-time Mr. Mom and begins to realize what he has been missing by not balancing his career and family life.

This Movie Premieres among other great Hallmark Father Movies, including... Wedding Daze and Come Dance at my Wedding.

Dad's Home


2. )

Andy Hardy's Double Life (1942) - VHS - I adore Mickey Rooney in ALL of the Andy Hardy Films. When they all become available on DVD - I'll be first in line!

There is something so beautiful and special about the Hardy Family - and I adore Andy's relationship, most of all, with his Father (played by Lewis Stone), the Judge, who always gives good sound wisdom and advice.

All of the Hardy films have within them - great Father & Son Moments.

Father of the Bride (Keepcase)3. )

Father Of The Bride (1950) - DVD - A terrific story about a Father's feelings while his little girl plans and gets married! (I adore the Steve Martin & Kimberly Williams-Paisley Father of the Bride version, though this one is good, too!) This original 1950 version stars Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor.

4. )

Life with Father (1947) - DVD - an outstanding insight into the life of this very interesting family and of course, their strict Father, played by William Powell. The Mother is portrayed by Irene Dunne, who I also love in I Remember Mama, a wonderful Mothers Day Movie!

  1. Please include: "Imagine That", with Eddie Murphy....yes, Eddie Murphy! He's incredible as a father with misplaced priorities who learns what's important in life...of course, in a hilarious, yet, very moving way.
