The cannon of Disney films are composed the quintessential awesome family. The quirky dad, Fred McMurray. The dorky older brother, Tommy Kirk. (sigh.) The cute little brother, Kervin Corcoran. The smarty pants/ talkative / sweet sister, Hayley Mills. Then there is Dorothy McGuire...the perfect Disney mother.
Dorothy McGuire represents everything that I love in an old movie. She's a stunning and stoic beauty, has an underrated amazing voice, and was effortlessly convincing as an actress. She wasn't in as many Disney films as the others from the quintessential Disney family...but she is just as important. I see her on the screen and I just melt.
