All the Way Mae Mordabito

All the Way May Mordabito
It is simple really. Madonna does not suck when she does not have to carry a movie. When she is in the lead, the movie is a bomb and her lack of acting skill becomes a major liability. In a lesser role (especially the right one), she can actually become an asset as shown in “A League of Their Own”.

In that movie, Madonna played the promiscuous and sultry “All the Way” Mae Mordabito, and with the possible exception of “Desperately Seeking Susan” she was praised for her work and wasn’t skewered by the critics. Again it was simple…she wasn’t asked to go beyond her range and she looked like a real movie star for the first (and only) time. It is too bad that Penny Marshall did not direct her every time.

The Bullet Points:
Movie Appeared:
A League of Their Own (1992)


Position Portrayed:
Center Field

Played for:
Rockford Peaches

Why you should vote for her:
Madonna stole some scenes against some solid Hollywood talent, and she looked good doing it.

Why you should not vote for her:
We would penalize her just for Shanghai Surprise and Swept Away.


To some this is a controversial induction, but Madonna’s long and fruitful career is a blueprint on how to stay relevant and productive over multiple decades. She may be primarily a Rock and Dance star, but the long running chameleon has delved into so many genres she should not be pigeonholed. Despite what we think many of our readers think, we feel she deserved to be a first year inductee.
