    Miss Moffat, the ultimate self-sacrificing teacher played by Bette Davis in the1945 "The Corn is Green."

    Where is the mom from Gremlins? She was great at fighting them off in her kitchen. I don`t remember the actress but she was a fighter for protecting her family.

    2 mama's we like: Mary Elizabeth Brooks York, mother of Sgt.. York, movie: Sgt. York. Also mother of a large catholic family, Alleta Sullivan, movie: The Fighting Sullivans. Both movies are biographies.

    How about Ma Joad, played by the magnificent Jane Darwell, in "The Grapes of Wrath"? I would put her near the top of the list! A perfect example of a key maternal figure who struggles mighty hard to keep the family together in difficult times. How many of these we see in real life!

    No Mae Braddock? Supportive, sacrificial, prayerful...totally vested in her family. Not quite sure why she isn't even mentioned on the notation list...

    Really the only "must-have" I was hoping to find on this list was Elastigirl, and you've included her so I have to concur that this is a mighty fine list!

    Aw, not even a mention for Barbara Stanwyck's Stella Dallas? ;~) Most melodramatic mom, maybe?
