4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 18, 2017

I’ve seen both versions of Father of the Bride and Steve Martin is fine and dandy but there is no better lovable curmudgeon than Spencer Tracy and he dons the role of the protective and skeptical father so effortlessly.

Donkey Skin (1970)

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Jan 18, 2017

Stil read more
