Classic films every Monday at 1PM - just £5 for over 55s - and off-peak prices for all other guests. Current Season: American Post-war Pop. One of Spencer Tracey's most joyously grumpy satirical comedies and co-starring Joan Bennett and emerging starlet, Liz Taylor. Based on a best-selling novel, the witty screenplay did something terribly modern for the time, telling the story in flashbacks. Opening with “Pops” Tracy sitting dejectedly in his armchair surrounded by post-wedding detritus, the father’s tale of woe begins: “I would like to say a few words about weddings. I've just been through one. Not my own, my daughter's. Someday in the far future, I may be able to remember it with tender indulgence, but not now…. The tagline during the 1950 release proudly proclaimed: “The Bride gets the THRILLS! Father gets the BILLS!” Director: Vincente Minelli Starring: Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett & Liz Taylor
