  • Though only 35 when she launched her movie career in 1941, American actress Barbara Brown was almost immediately typed in maternal roles. Brown went on to play Joan Leslie's strict mother in Hollywood Canteen (1944), Ann Blyth's snooty mother-in-law in Mildred Pierce (1945), reproving Mrs. Latham in Monogram's Henry series (with Walter Catlett and Raymond Walburn) and haughty Mrs. Elizabeth Parker in Universal's Ma and Pa Kettle films. She broke away from her standard characterization as girl's-school dean (and second-reel murder victim) Miss Keyes in The Falcon and the Co-Eds (1943). Barbara Brown was still essaying movie moms at the time of her retirement in 1955.
