Spencer Tracy could hold his own acting opposite anyone, and in this excellent sequel to FATHER OF THE BRIDE (1950), he proves that not even a baby can upstage him. Tracy reprises his role as Stanley Banks, who, with his sons away at school and his daughter, Kay (Elizabeth Taylor), recently married, is finally ready for the good life with his wife (Joan Bennett). However, in no time Kay is expecting, and Stanley finds himself a most reluctant grandfather. The going gets a little tough when Tracy and Bennett and their in-laws don't see eye to eye on grandparenting, but everything turns out for the best in this comedy penned by the husband-and-wife screenwriting team of Francis Goodrich and Albert Hackett (THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK; A CERTAIN SMILE; SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS). Taylor was getting a divorce from her first husband (hotel-chain heir Nicky Hilton) at the time of the film's release and the resultant publicity helped at the box office. leave a comment
