| Dated but very moving....
A true tear jerker...finally saw today on TCM / Oscar nominated Fay Bainter was excellent in the role of Hannah... dated in style & content but so moving...cant help but shed a tear... cast is top notch incl Jackie Cooper & Claude Rains...its a hidden classic... comb of Imitation of Life/ Stella Dallas of that genre... watch it! worth it I believe Fay Bainter was possibly the first actress to be nominated in 2 categories in same yr. best actress/Banners & best supt actress Jezebel (for which she won) since, Jessica Lange, Sigourney Weaver, & this yr. Julianne Moore have rivaled that honor... Bainter was wonderful!!
