It was *Mockingbird* that inspired this post, but it?s not the movie that I?m looking for?

 

This father is befuddled and put-upon while just trying to have a good time. He is a dad of the relatively modern age?what did they call it, ?the nuclear family? ?? An Oscar winner played dad?

You got that right, Wise Lady.*List of Adrian Messenger* (1963). Fun mystery (not too thrilled with fox hunts tho). good work, your turn to think one up.
