I Remember Mama -- May 11, 2014

San Francisco author Kathryn Forbes published Mama's Bank Account, a novel based on her Norwegian-American family, in 1943.  In 1944, John Van Druten adapted it into a play, I Remember Mama.  Irene Dunne played Mama in a 1948 movie.  The producers borrowed a real San Francisco cable car to lend atmosphere to the film.
