This is Pretty Good

Edward G. Robinson is the business mogul dad that dotes on his daughter but has a pretty strained relationship with his wife. The daughter keeps finding new fiances until she finally may settle on one. Seems like a fairly happy movie that takes a surprising twist that EGR has difficulty coping with.
