Let’s Hear it for the Dads: Three Father-Centric Classic Films

If you’ve been to, oh say, any store in the last couple of weeks, you are well aware of what time of year it is — Father’s Day. And of course all the stores are telling you, in brightly colored signs, what your father needs to make that day complete — things like a new tie, a fancy touch screen watch or perhaps a tri-speed, 9 gauge wireless razor of the future. Well, what if instead of listening to all those advertisers, you listened to little ole me. Rather than buying your pops a gift that will be over-priced and under-used, why don’t you plop down and watch one of these three father-centric classic films with him instead. Trust me, time with you is worth all the new ties in the world!
