I Remember Mama DVD

SKU ID #316048
$19.98
Mama didn't leave the Old Country and move into the Larkin Street house to become rich. She left because all her siblings and in-laws were already setting down roots in the USA. Family was where Mama always fit best. Right in the heart of things.

Director George Stevens made his transition from breezy prewar films to the acclaimed masterworks of his later career with this tender charmer about a Norwegian immigrant family in 1910 San Francisco. Irene Dunne (as Mama), Barbara Bel Gedde (the matriarch of a very different family in TV's Dallas). Oscar Homolka and Ellen Corby (Grandma on The Waltons) all earned Academy Award nominations, giving performances embraced in the smile-making glow of a bygone era, ties that endure and, most of all, Mama.

    Comments about this product:

    Such a sweet film about new immigrants coming to this country filled with hope for a bright future. This film shows the struggles and realistic side of life in their new world and the hardships they faced in their daily lives. The one precious broach that the mother owned and cherished is so touching. The children seem so innocent and respectful of their loving caring family of life back in the day.

      This is a good classic movie filled with nostalgia about how life used to be around the turn of the century - especially with immigrant families and many of the day-to-day challenges they had to face. Wonderful character play by Irene Dunn.

            I haven't even opened this DVD as yet, so can't comment on the quality. However, this is one of my favorite movies of all time and was compelled to have it in my library - especially at the bargain price.

              This movie is one of the great old time movies. The whole family can view this movie and not only enjoy it but I think our own children can actually learn something about how responsible children were back in the time. Great acting by all the cast. Very enjoyable, will watch again and again!!

                You needn't be Scandinavian to love these characters, but as I am of that heritage I treasured some of the family values and insights more. It's a story of family life and love in a changing time, where old world traditions truly become meshed with the new...done in a tender yet day to day factual style. I never get tired of viewing this film...I feel as though I am peeking in at my grandmother when she was a child and tasting a little of her sense of life ...in a new world, a more innocent time. This is a true masterpiece of a period in America that alot of families can share.

                          Lovely story that's timeless. It's also well written with a real appreciation of just how hard life was not that long ago. While we grab a credit card anytime we're in want, this is a story where solid family values and the desire to become more not just as one but as a whole is well defined and explained. If only we could recapture these values in the here and now. I think we'd find a lot more contented lifestyle and personal value to not only things but people.

                            The movie is nostalgic piece of Americana.
                            Example of immigration in the USA at the turn of the 20 century late 1900's
                            Tremendous family values
                            The importance of extended family members in the family system.
                            It can be used in a classroom in high and college levels.

                                I am buying the classic movies to educate my grandchildren on their forefathers. Great family history tool. My family came from Sweden and Norway. My husband's great-grandfather was a Methodist Minister from Canada just as the movie portrays in One Foot in Heaven. I now need to buy the Quiet Man with John Wayne for our Irish side. I am waiting for you to produce The 1971 The Emigrants and The Newland. All my family members want to buy them! Please do so soon!!!!

                                  This is a wonderful story and told very well by the writer, director, actors and editor. Unfortunately, the film I got on DVD was very grainy, so it was somewhat disappointing.

                                        This is one of my favorites. Raised in a Norwegian Family this movie reminds me of my heritage. I love the old fashion closeness of the family and the strength of Irene Dunn's character.

                                          A fantastic family movie. A movie that shows the good in the world and a family no matter what economic or personal struggles they face. Shows the interaction of a family - without a single cell phone or ipad to do it.

                                            What better way to spend an evening than in the glorious company of Miss Dunne and this beautiful, funny, touching film.
