Movies On The Radio: Favorite Films About Mothers

While we're celebrating mothers this month, why not honor the most memorable moms in cinema history?  Who can forget Faye Dunaway's portrayal of Joan Crawford as an abusive tyrant in "Mommie Dearest." 

Or the creepy tale of Jacqueline Kennedy's aging aunt and her middle-aged daughter living in the decaying "Grey Gardens" estate? This month on Movies on the Radio, we want to know about your favorite movies about moms.  Don't be afraid to go "Psycho" or "Throw Momma from the Train."  

Film experts Marsha Gordon and Laura Boyes will dissect your picks. Submit yours by e-mailing us at or tweet at us with #SOTmovie for a chance to be on the the show.  You won't find Movies on the Radio "Anywhere But Here." Do you remember that tear-jerker?
