When Blanche expresses disbelief that Big Daddy and her African-American nanny had had an affair, she claims Big Daddy was a Republican and thus wouldn't do that sort of thing. However, it was the Democratic Party that upheld Jim Crow laws, condemned interracial marriage, etc., while the Republican Party opposed such things. See more »

Rose Nylund: That reminds me of a story about St. Olaf's most famous matchmaker...
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Oh, please Rose! Spare me the endless, inane details of how Heidi Flugendugelgurgenplotz successfully matched a bull with a duck!... And how their daughter was a bull-duck who ran a small tattoo parlor in Carmel.

Wham, Bam, Thank You, Mammy (#6.5)
19 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Blanche's mammy, Viola, comes over one day. She heard that Big Daddy died and wants to have a music box she gave to him. Blanche refuses too. Soon she finds out that Viola and her father had an affair. She doesn't take it well, but mainly because she is mad at Viola for leaving her without saying goodbye.

A sweet story.Viola is a great character who was well created and well played. And the story is well done. At first one is a bit mad at Blanche for acting like this, but then one sees why she was hurt.

And interesting story on matchmaking interesting because of seeing the attitude of society back in the days.
