Description
Mama didn't leave the Old Country and move into the Larkin Street house to become rich. She left because all her siblings and in-laws were already setting down roots in the USA. Family was where Mama always fit best. Right in the heart of things.

Director George Stevens made his transition from breezy prewar films to the acclaimed masterworks of his later career with this tender charmer about a Norwegian immigrant family in 1910 San Francisco. Irene Dunne (as Mama), Barbara Bel Gedde (the matriarch of a very different family in TV's Dallas). Oscar Homolka and Ellen Corby (Grandma on The Waltons) all earned Academy Award nominations, giving performances embraced in the smile-making glow of a bygone era, ties that endure and, most of all, Mama.

    Lovely story that's timeless. It's also well written with a real appreciation of just how hard life was not that long ago. While we grab a credit card anytime we're in want, this is a story where solid family values and the desire to become more not just as one but as a whole is well defined and explained. If only we could recapture these values in the here and now. I think we'd find a lot more contented lifestyle and personal value to not only things but people.

          I am buying the classic movies to educate my grandchildren on their forefathers. Great family history tool. My family came from Sweden and Norway. My husband's great-grandfather was a Methodist Minister from Canada just as the movie portrays in One Foot in Heaven. I now need to buy the Quiet Man with John Wayne for our Irish side. I am waiting for you to produce The 1971 The Emigrants and The Newland. All my family members want to buy them! Please do so soon!!!!

            This is a wonderful story and told very well by the writer, director, actors and editor. Unfortunately, the film I got on DVD was very grainy, so it was somewhat disappointing.

                  This is one of my favorites. Raised in a Norwegian Family this movie reminds me of my heritage. I love the old fashion closeness of the family and the strength of Irene Dunn's character.

                    A fantastic family movie. A movie that shows the good in the world and a family no matter what economic or personal struggles they face. Shows the interaction of a family - without a single cell phone or ipad to do it.

                        Where have all the good solid values demonstrated in this film gone?!

                        The thing that I think is great about this movie is that although it's old, TCM makes it available. The only complaint I have is that the visual quality is not the best, the picture is much darker that when seen on television. Also, I have to crank up the volume as the audio is quiet. I watch this movie often. It reminds me of my family in a way.

                                It depicts the reality of turn-of-the-century emigrant life. My own grandmother so related to the TV series with Peggy Wood. And my mother who grew up in the 1910's related to the movie so much so that after the passing of my grandmother she could not watch it because it brought back memories that were now gone. Young people should watch it, but they would probably think it "syrupy" because they need to see action,action,action.

                                      A great moral story. I loved the interaction among all the characters in this moving story. I would have liked it to be in color.

                                        A tender, warm family film that will entertain you. Oscar Homolka is an outstanding Uncle Kris!

                                          This was a great personal purchase! Irene Dunne is fantastic, as usual, and Oscar Homolka (sp?) gives a wonderfully entertaining and, in the end, heartwarming performance as the family's uncle. This is a wonderful film with good values for the individual or the family!
