White Mama (1980)

Bette Davis is the obstinate White Mama and Ernest Harden Jr. the obstinate foster teen who take up arms in a sea of gritty New York misfortune. The 1980 television movie takes some unforeseen twists which adds to the realism and evocation of the era. Ably directed by Jackie Cooper with small yet pivotal performances by Eileen Heckart and Virginia Capers, White Mama is a wonderfully, touching addition to the canon of Bette Davis movies - and you can watch it on YouTube!
