"...an extremely accomplished craftsman... "
|With Leslie Caron.
Father Goose - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):
"Normally, I am less than enthusiastic about the way fantasy and reality are blended in Hollywood comedies. I must say I found the mixture in Father Goose very engaging. The film was co-authored by Peter Stone (who also wrote Grant's recent success Charade) and directed by Ralph Nelson (Lilies of the Field). Both men appear to have an unusual flair for combining tongue-in-cheek wackiness with honest human insight to produce a very palatable entertainment package.
The difference between Grant and most other old-line movie stars, who also essentially played themselves on the screen, is that he is an extremely accomplished craftsman and also has a highly developed sense of how to choose a script that does well by him and that he can do well by. I thought that Miss Caron was delightful in a role that was an off-beat combination of propriety, gumption and earthly good sense."
