Mom loved Tootsie. It was one of her favorites. I know that Nana really liked it, too. I forgot that one of the leads is Dabney Coleman, who was also in 9 to 5, another of her favorites.

I thought I’d put together a list of mom’s favorite movies. If you remember any, drop me a line so I can add them.

  • The Pirates of Penzance
  • Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi (of course)
