Mothers ~ Spring Byington



Spring Byington made the mistake of playing a “heartwarming” Mrs. March in Little Women (1933) and was quickly typecast as Mother in a variety of films. Meet John Doe, Heaven Can Wait, and You Can’t Take It With You soon led to a career as everyone’s favorite mother-in-law in the TV show, December Bride. Her last film appearance at the age of 70 was Please Don’t Eat the Daisies, as the spirited mother of Doris Day, proving that like all mothers, Spring was in it for the long haul.
