Magnificent Ma Joad
- David Atkins
Jane Darwell was her stage name, but forever movies are played this actress will be Ma Joad in John Ford's masterpiece The Grapes of Wrath Rarely has a role melded so well with the actress. Ms. Darwell justly won the Academy Award for her brilliant performance as Ma Joad. Ms. Darwell's scenes with Henry Fonda are surely part of any acting class worldwide. When Fonda leaves and Ma Joad knows in her heart she will never see Him again, it is worth 4 years of acting class. Bravo! Ms. Darwell was in many many movies all honored by her presence but none more than The Grapes of Wrath. True to her personality Ms. Darwell's grave is listed in Pennsylvania not by her stage name but by her real name Patti Woodward. No matter. Forever she is Ma Joad.
