  • Father of the Bride

    1950. USA. Directed by Vincente Minnelli. With Spencer Tracy, Elizabeth Taylor. Father of the Bride was the final Hollywood production on which Dalí collaborated. When Stanley Banks (Tracy) thinks about his daughter's upcoming nuptuals, he lapses into a nightmare about arriving late for the wedding. The frightfulness of the Dalí-designed sequence is mitigated by Tracy's bumbling gentility, but there is no mistaking the psychoanalytic overtones of a father unable to accept his daughter's maturity. Print courtesy George Eastman House. 92 min.
