Olivia Gentile on the Best Grandparents in Movies
Posted on December 1, 2015 at 11:13 pm
Olivia Gentile‘s terrific Grandparent Effect blog has an outstanding new list of the best movie grandparents. Some of the films are not for kids (or adults who don’t like bad language) but all of them are terrific.
I’d add to her list the Shirley Temple version of “Heidi” as well, with the wonderful Jean Hersholt as the alm-uncle/grandfather, “Little Lord Fauntleroy” with C. Aubrey Smith and Freddie Bartholomew, and “Roommates,” inspired by a real-life grandfather who raised his grandson and cared for his great-grandchildren as well, starring Peter Falk.
