I've recently learnt about Cary Grant and purchased a few of his movies. I like Father Goose the best. Cary Grant and Leslie Caron were very intelligent in this movie: the way they brought out character they played - Mr. Eckland and Madame Freneau.
I feel connected with the story. My daughter and I have watched this movie more than 100 times and we really enjoy it every time. In Father Goose, Cary Grant played a character, which was quite different from other of his movies such as Indiscreet, That Touch Of Mink, To Catch A Thief, etc.., He was unshaved, uncombed, filthy, untidy, insensitive, and care-free. But underneath of this messy image, a suave, full of fact-of-life Walter Eckland would not mind to suck out the venom in an attempt to save Ms. Freneau. I was really moved.
