This fun, loveable film, features a young, sweet-faced Elizabeth Taylor as Kay Banks, a girl on the verge of getting married. Spencer Tracy stars as her father, Stanley Banks, who has more than a little trouble with the news that he's about to lose his "little" girl to another man.
Stanley T. Banks: Who giveth this woman? "This woman." But she's not a woman. She's still a child. And she's leaving us. What's it going to be like to come home and not find her? Not to hear her voice calling "Hi, Pops" as I come in? I suddenly realized what I was doing. I was giving up Kay. Something inside me began to hurt.

Ellie Banks: Oh, Stanley. I don't know how to explain. A wedding. A church wedding. Well it's, it's what every girl dreams of. A bridal dress, the orange blossoms, the music. It's something lovely to remember all the rest of her life. And something for us to remember too.
