Edna May Oliver remembered in David Copperfield (1935) and Drums Along the Mohawk (1939)

Today is the birthday of my favorite 1930’s scene stealing actress, Edna May Oliver, who as Aunt Betsey in director George Cukor’s David Copperfield (1935) firmly stood up to all the Dickensian bullies in defense of her nephew David (Freddie Bartholomew) and as the outspoken kindly Mohawk valley widow Mrs. Mc Klennar befriending newlyweds Henry Fonda and Claudette Colbert in John Ford’s Drums Along the Mohawk (1939).
