Elizabeth Taylor & Spencer Tracy in Father's Little Dividend (1951)

Elizabeth Taylor was one of the last movie actress of the Golden Age era. She moved audiences with her captivating performance and stunning beauty. They said that she also had a great sense of humour. And with that in mind we wanted to present to you the film comedy in which she starred:

Father's Little Dividend (1951)

Newly happily married Kay Dunstan (Elizabeth Taylor) announces that she and her husband Buckley Dunstan (Don Taylor) are going to have their first baby. This news left her father Stanley (Spencer Tracy) having to come to grips with the fact that he will soon be a granddad, which he was not truly happy about.

Father's Little Dividend was semi-remade in 1995 as Father of the Bride Part II, with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton in Tracy and Bennett's roles. However, Keaton's character also has a baby and the plot has many similarities to this movie.


She will truly be missed!
