8 p.m. on TCM Movie: Father Goose

Cary Grant gives one of his most engaging later performanc­es in this 1964 comedy. The jaunty theme song — “Pass Me By” — says it all for his character, a happily aimless seafarer reluctantl­y enlisted to help Australia’s navy during World War II. Supposedly alone on a South Seas island, he ends up protecting a teacher (Leslie Caron) and her students, who are on the run from Japanese soldiers. The comedy airs tonight as part of a salute to Grant.
