Paul Graetz, the father, was a superb actor.

A message movie from 1935, Father Takes a Walk (aka: Mr. Cohen Takes a Walk) is the equal of It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) for conveying a message that clarifies life, giving, heart, self discipline, freedom and family. Try to find a little bio about the movie and there is little. But, I just watched this movie on TCM and truly it is a beautiful movie. In light of today’s obnoxious, obscene anti-semitism rearing its ugly, bigoted face…shame on you!…this movie challenges you, if you are a bigot or cold hearted, to see the honor of integrity, pride, love, family and compromise without labels. No images seem available for the movie…hmmm? Whatever, if you can ever see this movie and you walk the talk of tolerance, love, freedom and ‘coexist’… it! Well done!
