11 Greatest Movie Dads That You Can't Help but Love ...


My list of the world’s greatest movie dads is a hodgepodge of various kinds of dads, including an ex-CIA agent, a model lawyer, a comical Italian, an adventurous professor, a homeless-man-turned-millionaire, a clownfish and a nanny in disguise. I am lining up seven films which feature some of the greatest movie dads for Father’s Day.

1. Atticus Finch (to Kill a Mockingbird)

One of the greatest movie dads and should I say, greatest book dads, is Atticus Finch – a good lawyer, and even better father. In the 1962 film adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird, Gregory Peck brought to life Atticus Finch, the type of father who teaches his children by example. It’s one thing to love a book, and another thing to love both the book and its film.
