Description
In this irresistible tour of movie motherhood, film critic and historian Richard Corliss explores the many ways Hollywood and its leading ladies have celebrated, vilified, and otherwise memorialized Mom. Here are Great American Moms in such movies as I Remember Mama and Places in the Heart; Surrogate Moms like Ginger Rogers in Bachelor Mother and Rosalind Russell in Auntie Mame, Dianne Wiest in Edward Scissorhands and Sigourney Weaver in Aliens; and Criminal Moms like Shelley Winters in Bloody Mama. And of course, we meet Showbiz Moms from Gypsy to Mommie Dearest, and the downright evil Angela Lansbury in The Manchurian Candidate. Along with a double foreword written by Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, and sidebar essays by Eva Marie Saint, Illeana Douglas, Jane Powell, Sam Robards, and Tippi Hedren, the book is packed with photos and film stills.

"Both film students and regular movie fans alike will enjoy this definitive work."Library Journal (starred review)
