accepted this part as soon as she read the script. Playing the
part of Josephine Norris offered her the opportunity to play
a woman from young adult to aging career woman. It certainly
was worth it since she won her first Oscar for this part.
is a true tear jerker and I dare anyone ot watch the last scenes
without crying. The story revolves around Josephine, an unwed
mother who's fiance dies in WWI. She decides to allow her friends
to take care of the child until she can take care of him herself.
However, when she is ready to take him they don't want to give
him up and nor does her son recognize her has his mother or
want to be with her.
