I first saw Sargent York when I was 5 years old (I am now 78) and just saw it for a second time this Memorial Day weekend. Ms. Wycherly's ability to convey an enormous amount just with her eyes and the position of her head was so impactful at the age of 5 I could see those emotions in my mind every time I thought of the movie. To my surprise today these many years later watching her again I had the same emotional reactions. Her performance was so understated. The host of the program commented that she acted the part just as Mrs. York was in real life. I believe it.
One of the best relatively unknown actresse.

I often watch movies I really like whenever they come on television, regardless of how many times I have seen them before. The ones I really like I buy now on DVDs. I bought both White Heat and Sergeant York on VHS tape many years ago. I really appreciated the work Margaret Wycherly did in both but I especially admired her portrayal of Ma York. It was absolutely brilliant in its low-key, simple yet genuine, loving characterization. In addition, her face and voice were absolutely perfect for the role. In White Heat, Wycherly played Ma Jarret, a character completely the opposite of Ma York in every way and did a terrific job of it as well. I have often wondered how she managed to miss being in the Grapes of Wrath, in which she would've fit perfectly opposite Henry Fonda and the other members of the cast. her appearance would've been perfect for a lead or a supporting role. I only wish she had left us a larger film legacy with which we could've enjoyed and appreciated her talent.

Excellent hard line player, don't run into her in a dark alley!
