The Mating Season 1951 Gene Tierney Comedy Drama Black and White

Stars: Gene Tierney, John Lund, Miriam Hopkins

The Mating Season is definitely, though unexpectedly, a beautiful movie. The plot relies on a simple but original idea: the mother-in-law is a positive character, in some sense the actual heroine of the movie. The misfit between the low-class Ellen McNulty (Thelma Ritter) and the upper-class folks surrounding her, with her son (John Lund) as a link, is a source of continuous fun. Thelma Ritter gives a first-class performance.

Ellen McNulty leaves her New Jersey hamburger stand and heads west to pay a surprise visit to her son and his new bride. When Ellen arrives, her daughter-in-law mistakes her for the maid she has hired for a big party they are throwing. Rather than cause any embarrassment, Ellen goes along with the charade, which leads to many complications.

Please note: There is a small Hollywood logo in the upper left corner of this movie.
