Roberto Benigni as Guido and Giorgio Cantarini as his son Joshua in "Life Is Beautiful." (Miramax)

We know some of the memorable movie fathers.  There's Spencer Tracy in Father of the Bride, James Stewart as George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life and Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, of course.

But where should we rank a humble bookkeeper like Guido (Roberto Benigni, pictured) willing to give everything to protect his son in Life Is Beautiful?
 
Or, for that matter, an aging lion ready to pass the jungle on to his son, or a struggling single-parent salesman fighting just to keep his son housed and fed?
 
In "Father Knows Best, Or Does He?," a fun-filled and poignant presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips and lasting about an hour, we'll focus on movie fathers, both good and, shall we say, offbeat.
 
Together, we'll strive to answer the question, Just who is the best movie father in cinematic history?
