  • DumboFlicks in Five: "Baby Mine" from Dumbo
    I wanted to pick just the "right" movie and composer for Mother's Day to pay tribute to the love, devotion and loyalty that epitomizes motherhood. There were so many movies, it was hard to choose: "Steel Magnolias", "I Remember Mama", "Little Women" in it's many movie incarnations. Then in a flash my favorite song about Moms came to mind, and a "real" Mom isn't involved. From the WWII-era "Dumbo", we hear Barbara Cook sing the Oscar Winning "Baby Mine."
