FRANK BORZAGE, Spring Byington and Errol Flynn on the set of Green's Light (1937)

Spring Byington ((1886–1971). The possessor of one of Hollywood's gentlest faces and warmest voices, and about as sweet as honey both on and off camera, character actress Spring Byington was seldom called upon to play callous or unsympathetic characters. Playing the part of the mother in "Little Women" (1933) ignited a heartwarming typecasting that kept her employed on the screen throughout the 1930s and 1940s. (Source: IMDb)
