The Courtship of Eddie's Father
In this Metrocolor rom-com, Eddie (a young Ron Howard) gamely sets out to find a new wife for his widowed father (the silver-foxy Glenn Ford). While setting Dad up with sexpots and socialites -- over the shrill warnings of the matronly housekeeper who cautions that the world is full of "floozies" who would marry him "just for the equipment" in his apartment -- Eddie learns some important lessons about societal expectations of female desirability.
