Taylor earned her place in this precision-tooled MGM A-list vehicle that charmed moviegoers and received an Oscar nomination for Best Film. Spencer Tracy is in prime prickly form as the loving dad whose wife Joan Bennett grounds him through the anxiety-stoking planning of daughter Taylor’s wedding to Don Taylor (no relation). Adapted by the (also Oscar-nominated) husband-and-wife team Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett from Edward Streeter’s novel.

A film by Vincente Minnelli
