This movie won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Oscar Best Picture nominees often get nominated for (and frequently win) a screenplay award as well. In this year, all five Best Picture nominees were nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, making the field's competition for the Oscar somewhat easier. See more »
While at the Salamaua dock and conning Eckland into becoming a coast watcher, Frank Houghton is preparing to light his pipe in his left hand. In the next shot it's in his right hand, and he's smoking, but the next line of dialog has the pipe back in his left hand unlit. See more »
"Father Goose" is not my pick for the best Cary Grant flick (I think that's "Operation Petticoat", if you exclude his collaborations with Hitchcock), but it's a pleasant--if a little overlong--movie that works very well as light entertainment. The dialogue is superb, containing some really witty remarks and delightful exchanges. And it is fun to see Grant playing a sullen boozer--quite an exceptional role for him.
