Mothers and Sons

Many months ago, I wrote a blog entry about Fathers and Daughters.  It’s high time that I looked at the subject of Mothers and Sons and how they are represented in the movies and on television.

The relationship between mothers and sons has been examined over and over again.  It’s been categorized and analyzed and is considered a mystery that can never be solved.  Which is just downright silly, if you ask me.  Because each relationship is as unique as the people in it.

It Don't Come Easy

Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues, and you know it don’t come easy.

For some reason, Ringo Starr’s song got stuck in my head the other day. It made me think about musicians and singers who have entertained us over the years. Hollywood has had a love affair with music ever since Al Jolson said, “You ain’t heard nothin’ yet!” Although musicals are not the movie staple they once were, we still have movies about singers, giving the studios a chance to make non-traditional musicals.
