Movie Info

In this old-fashioned romantic comedy, Fred Astaire plays the long-absent prodigal father of Debbie Reynolds, who is just about to be married. Astaire shows up at the wedding and puts on the old charm, but before film's end he realizes that charm alone is no substitute for parental responsibility.

Audience Reviews for The Pleasure of His Company

Utterly charming comedy with just a twinge of the bittersweet. Fred and Lili are wonderfully continental, Debbie sweet and Charlie Ruggles marvelously droll.
