      This movie is a Black & White film classic. The story is about a Norwegian family living in San Francisco circa 1910. The main character is Mama, played by Irene Dunn who turns in a great performance. Mama runs her family with love and understanding and offers family members excellent advice when needed. This is a great, good feeling family movie which I recommend highly.

      My mom enjoyed watching this film when I was younger, and now that she's gone I enjoy it even more, as it helps me to remember her.
