Father's Day: Some Great Film Fathers

Fathers are well-depicted in these films:

  • Friendly Persuasion: Gary Cooper as the Quaker patriarch. Silent strength.

  • Taken: Retired CIA agent Liam Neeson racks up a major body count to rescue his daughter.

  • Finding Nemo: Nemo's dad (Albert Brooks) fends off sharks and jellyfish to find his son.

  • A Christmas Story: Darren McGavin played one of the most realistic dads.

  • To Kill a Mockingbird: Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck) sets a high bar for great fathers.

  • Fiddler on the Roof: What father doesn't identify with Tevya?
