This past Mother's Day, I gave my mother a box set with 10 DVDs representing the worst mothers on film. I could have done the best mothers, but that would have been boring and not as much fun to work with. I created a special video counting down the top ten and this is #5-Bette Davis as Mrs. Taggart in The Anniversary. My partner, Mom Smackley, takes center stage with his comments on this one.
After the introduction, here is the list so far:
10. Beth Jarrett played by Mary Tyler Moore in Ordinary People
9. Lilly Dillon played by Anjelica Huston in The Grifters
8. Jude Madigan played by Jamie Lee Curtis in Mother's Boys
7. Eleanor Iselin played by Angela Lansbury in The Manchurian Candidate
6. Mrs. Lift played by Anne Ramsey in Throw Momma From the Train
5. Mrs. Taggart played by Bette Davis in The Anniversary
Who will be #1? Keep watching!
