THE COURTSHIP OF EDDIE'S FATHER (1962) C widescreen 117m dir: Vincente Minnelli

w/Glenn Ford, Ronny Howard, Shirley Jones, Stella Stevens, Dina Merrill, Roberta Sherwood, Jerry Van Dyke

Charming comedy-drama about a widower (Ford) who tries to bring up his motherless son (Howard) --- and vice versa.

From Variety 's review of the film "The story of a dad and a lad and their divergent views on what constitutes desirable stepmotherhood, the production is richly mounted, wittily written [by John Gay] and engagingly played by an expert, spirited and attractive cast."
