La_0.67Ca_0.33Mn_O.3 films with thickness between 25 and 400nm were fabricated on (001)SrTiO_3 and (001)LaAlO_3 substrates, using pulsed laser deposition. The magnetization and resistivity ρ of the fil ms were studied as functions of thickness. The reduction of t causes the decrease of the Curie temperature T_C in addition to the increase of ρ of the films. Com pared with the compressive strain in the La_0.67Ca_0.33Mn_O.3/La AlO_3 films, the tensile strain in the La_0.67Ca_0.33Mn_O.3/SrTiO_3 films causes a faster reduction of T_C with t, and a larger value of ρ_０. The low_temperature ρ is found to follow well ρ=ρ_0+Bω_s/sin h^2(ω_s/2/k_BT)+CT^n， with ρ_０ being the residual resistivity. The second term arises fro m the scattering by a soft optical phonon mode, and the third term denotes the other possible transp ort mechanisms. B, ω_s(the frequency of a soft optical mode) and C are fitting parameters. At temperatures higher than T_C, ρ of all the films show activated conduction with ρ=DT×exp（E_a/k_BT）. Here, E_a is the activation energy. Based on the investigation of ρ_０, ω_s and E_a, the thickness and strain effect s in the films are discussed, separately. Further study shows that the variation of T_C is mai nly associated with E_a and ω_s, confirming the crucial role of the electron_phonon coupling in the strain effects on T_C.
