This week's movie topic is all about Dads...

"John Bridger" from The Italian Job (2003) played by Donald Sutherland- How many dads are thieves and send their daughters beautiful jewels from Italy?? Plus their bond was so strong she agreed to seek revenge against the man who killed him.

"Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader" from Star Wars. We have too many actors for me to list them here! But he wasn't such a great dad. Let's see almost killed his wife and then wreaked murder and mayhem throughout the galaxy by slaughtering millions, including Jedi children. And tried to convince his own son to "go to the darkside."

Cinderella's Father from all the adaptations of Cinderella. How in the world could a guy who loves his little girl so much and seems to be such a nice guy marry the worst woman possible? Looks like he was a great dad until it came time to choose a new mother for "Cindy." Then off and dies and leaves her to be a slave during her formative years!

"Guido Orefice" from Life is Beautiful (1997) played by Roberto Benigni- What an amazing father that is able to save his son and keep his spirits up by convincing him their Nazi death camp is actually a game to be won. Beautiful story that leaves me bawling with horror and yet inspired with hope.

  1. Yes, you're right about Cinderella's dad. And come to think of it, where was Snow White's old man when she really needed him? How could they saddle their darling daughters with such evil stepmoms?

  2. I loved "Life Is Beautiful!" What a wonderful love story, both between the parents and between the dad and son.

  3. Hahahaha! Cindy's Dad! Disney was always giving us orphaned or mistreated children, wasn't he?
