I Remember Mama (DVD)
This high point in the 1940s vogue for movies about family life at the turn of the century was directed by George Stevens (Shane), and stars Irene Dunne as the matriarch of a Norwegian family that faces hard knocks with grace in 1910 (or so) San Francisco. Based on John Van Druten's hit play (derived from Kathryn Forbes's autobiographical memoir), the film is gorgeously rendered and quite moving as an act of memory. The sterling cast of character actors--Edgar Bergen, Rudy Vallee, Oscar Homolka, Barbara Bel Geddes, Ellen Corby, Cedric Hardwicke--add great texture and a depth of experience that make the film feel quite lived-in. Hardwicke's turn as a penniless boarder who "pays" his rent by reciting from classic literature is a special highlight. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I'm very happy to finally have this movie on DVD. I feel like it is a better quality than the VHS tape I had previously and now I don't have to worry about it wearing out. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Amazon Customer

Excellent movie! The whole family enjoyed it. All are very good actors (of course) indeed. And more important for me - it was close captioned. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Sharon Ford
