Some may think it was unfortunate that Lucile Watson often got the role of meddling mother, but my what a lineup? With roles in Waterloo Bridge, The Women, Watch on the Rhine, My Reputation, Never Say Goodbye and Made for Each Other, Watson didn’t only bring film credits, but also stage credentials that would help her move into the limelight, and so she did at age 55. Working another twenty years as mother to films biggest stars, she finally retired at age 75 and called it a day. Here’s to all the mothers that keep going…we salute you.
