Movie Mamas..here we go again


Recommended Posts

Oh, the movie mom--her character can be total love and devotion, evil and manipulative...or anything in between.  Here's a quiz about movie moms...but it's a little bit different:  I'll post two pictures of actors/actresses for each question--first, you have to identify each of these people...AND..you have to figure out the actress that portrayed the mother of both in DIFFERENT films. So..the answer will be the name of both performers, the actress who played their mom, and the names of the movies.  Because the pictures take up a lot of room, I'm going to post 10 today...and 10 tomorrow. (please don't hit quote when you answer...the pages just get toooooo long repeating all the photos)

Very ambitious thread, Shutoo.  It may take a while to get them all answered.  I'll start off with a couple.

#5a is Tim Matheson and #5b is Kevin Kline.  Debbie Reynolds played Matheson's mother in "Divorce, American Style" and she played Kline's mother in "In & Out".

#7a is Barbra Streisand and #7b is Dick Van Dyke.  Maureen Stapleton played Barbra's mother in "Nuts!" and she played Dick's mother in "Bye Bye Birdie".
