Decent Father/Daughter Movie of the 60's
21 December 2003 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Well, those not familiar with actor David Niven film work of worthy of awards is his role in a Oscar Award nominated 1958 "Separate Tables" psychological drama great cast American-British main actors American Burt Lancaster, Rita Hayward, British Deborah Kerr David Niven which won Best Actor as well in a romantic comedy "The Moon Is Blue." Also, appeared in latter part of "The Pink Panther" film series after Peter Sellers died in 1980 called " The Trail of the Pink Panther" "The Curse of the Pink Panther" last, which Niven was terminally ill. along with these movie flops, famous director Blake Edwards tried re-resurrect series. This father & daughter theme film does not measure up with others from "Fiddle on the Roof" to "Magnolia" or "Traffic." This situation comedy Niven plays a teaching psychiatrist (Jonathan Kingsley) at local university married to wife (Alice Kingsley) played by Lola Albright, have two daughters, oldest (Linda) played by Christina Ferrare and her sister (Abbey) played by Darlene Carr. Also, surprised me was Ozzie Nelson as an adviser/neighbor (Dr.Herbert Fleischer) who tries to help Niven's role as father, the difficulty of raising the two teens especially one of them. Geez, enough to GIVE YOU GRAY HAIR or GO BOLD! Yikes! Consider this was revolutionary sixties.1963 "Take Her She's Mine" is similar 6/10 as well.
