Sergeant York

The York family with Walter Brennan as Pastor Pyle in a rerelease publicity still for Sergeant York (1941).  June Lockhart was sister Rosie, Dickie Moore was brother George, Gary Cooper was Alvin York, Joan Leslie was wife Gracie, and Margaret Wycherly was Mother York.

Margaret’s work was primarily on the stage so she had the attitude on the set that she was slumming in Hollywood.  She was a memorable screen mother again in 1949 for James Cagney in White Heat…  “I made it, ma.  Top of the world.”
