Stars: Cary Grant, Leslie Caron, Trevor Howard

Father Goose Story Line. During World War II South Sea beachcomber Walter Eckland is persuaded to spy on planes passing over his island. He gets more than he bargained for as schoolteacher Catherine Frenau arrives on the run from the Japanese with her pupils in tow.

This is Cary Grant at his best. In real life, Cary is in his 60’s and Caron is in her 30’s but the age difference doesn’t even come into play here. They seem to fit perfectly. See it, you won’t be sorry!

Father Goose is one of Grant’s best comedic performances. He is at the very top of his game. Every movement, every gesture is well nigh perfect. It looks effortless on his part but it is all well thought out. Grant doesn’t so much steal his scenes as make all the other actors seem funnier. The usually pleasant Leslie Caron rises to nearly Audrey Hepburn status in his presence.

Tagline: The story of the Beachcomber and the Castaway Schoolteacher who gave him some surprising lessons!
