The answers to several questions that will help us make a well thought out decision are outlined below. The questions overlap and reinforce each other. People usually intuitively answer these questions. There is no particular order in which the questions are addressed.
The father is the progenitor, the protector, the provider, the disciplinarian, the authority, the ruler of the family.
Well, in a perfect world. These age old concepts leave that other important person, mom, out a bit but the thought of a strong head of the household being the father goes back to the beginning of human beings and their history. In order for there to be a continuance of fathers a new crop must be planted and, to that end, sons and daughters come along.
However, this is the point where many a problem can arise. The potential next father must grow and blossom and take his place in the world while the older father must eventually give way and decline in order for this to happen.
A wise father knows this and at least tries to maintain his legacy, his blueprint, by teaching the son to be like himself. This is where more problems occur. Adding to the complication is the fact that sons are quite often expected to be like their fathers.
Yes, the same goes for mother and daughter, but often not to so dramatic a degree. All this being stated, its small wonder that when the movies tackle this relationship its quite often intense and dramatic, though, as will be shown, there are some humorous moments to be found as well.
One thing will not be on the following list: To this end, this list wants to keep it real, one way or another, and so these are the notable films about fathers and their sons chosen: The Kid The great silent comedy star-writer-director Charlie Chaplin eventually became father to ten children but, ironically, hardly knew his own.
At the time that Chapling decided that he needed to step up from short subject comedies into features, he was both fatherless and childless.
In light of that, it makes it rather touching that his first feature would concern a surrogate father-son relationship. Chaplin plays his trademark character, The Tramp. She leaves the child where she hopes a millionaire will find and adopt him but The Tramp finds him first.
The little boy matures into Jackie Coogan, the first great child star of the movies. He and Chaplin have perfect chemistry as The Tramp, with no knowledge of children, ingeniously finds ways to raise the little tyke and teach him to be kind but slyly clever in a cruel world not sympathetic to the poor.
There are some fine gags in this film but the Chaplin-Coogan synergy is what truly makes it memorable. Like Chaplin, Keaton was born into a performing world in which his familywas none too prosperous.
However, Keaton knew his father, Joe, all too well. The Keaton parents were long time performers when their child came into the world and were not above using the child to milk applause until the very early time came for the boy to join the act.
In this one Bill, Sr. Ernest Torrance, one rough customer on screena longtime paddle boat owner on the Mississippi, is waiting for Bill, Jr. As with most films of this time and type, the hero finds a way, saves the day, and shows dad that he is worth something.

The father-son relationship can be complex. Fathers and sons with widely different interests can find it hard to relate to one another. Sometimes dads and sons feel competitive against one another. When Bob Greene went home to central Ohio to be with his dying father, it set off a chain of events that led him to knowing his dad in a way he never had before—thanks to a quiet man who lived just a few miles away, a man who had changed the history of the world.
"Father and Son" is a popular song written and performed by English singer-songwriter Cat Stevens now in a broader context that reflected not just the societal conflict of Stevens' time, but also captured the impulses of older and younger generations in general.
