Father Of The Bride Trivia

  1. Spencer Tracy initially wanted Katharine Hepburn as his on-screen wife in the film, but it was decided that they were too closely associated as a romantic pair to convincingly portray a happily married couple with children. As a result, Joan Bennett was cast in the role instead.
  2. MGM presented Elizabeth Taylor with a special wedding gift in the form of a one-of-a-kind wedding dress designed by Helen Rose. This gesture was not only a personal gift to Taylor but also served as a promotional tactic for the movie.
  3. In the film, one of the gifts received by Kay (Elizabeth Taylor) is a Venus de Milo statue with a clock in the stomach, which is disparagingly referred to as a "stinker" by Stanley T. Banks (Spencer Tracy). Interestingly, this same gift reappears in the 1991 remake of the film, "Father of the Bride," among the presents, and once again, it fails to be received well.
  4. The premiere of the film took place just twelve days after Elizabeth Taylor's real-life wedding to Conrad "Nicky" Hilton, Jr. on May 6, 1950. The timing of the premiere and the surrounding publicity of Taylor's marriage is credited with contributing to the movie's success.
  5. The picture on the nightstand that Spencer Tracy's character looks at in the film was a genuine photograph of Elizabeth Taylor from her childhood, adding a personal touch to the scene.
  6. Both Elizabeth Taylor and Joan Bennett have portrayed the character of Amy March in big-screen adaptations of "Little Women." Joan Bennett played Amy March in the 1933 version, while Elizabeth Taylor took on the role in the 1949 adaptation.
  7. The wedding date of Kay and Buckley in the film, June 10, was a deliberate nod by director Vincente Minnelli to his wife, Judy Garland, as it coincided with her birthday. Coincidentally, June 10 is also the date on which Spencer Tracy passed away in 1967.
  8. Despite being nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards, the film did not win any Oscars, making it the only nominee in that category to go home empty-handed that year.
  9. Comedian Jack Benny expressed a strong desire to play the lead role in the film but was ultimately considered unsuitable for the part.
  10. A radio adaptation of the film was broadcast on February 25, 1951, as part of "Theater Guild on the Air." The radio adaptation featured Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett, and Elizabeth Taylor reprising their respective roles from the movie.
