Mame is an unconventional individualist socialite from the roaring 20’s. When her brother dies, she is forced to raise her nephew Patrick. However, Patrick’s father has designated an executor to his will to protect the boy from absorbing too much of Mame’s rather unconventional perspective. Patrick and Mame become devoted to each other in spite of this restriction, and together journey through Patrick’s childhood and the great depression, amidst some rather zaney adventures.

Film Review

Oh Mame child I just love this movie. When a friend kept reciting lines from this film I became intrigued and asked what film the lines were from. Well, I just had to check it out as I was told as a gay man that it was "my duty" to do so. I have been reciting lines from Auntie Mame ever since. Now I see Auntie Mame about 2-3 times a year and never seem to get tired of it. I don't know what it is about this film that gets me every time. The set design is so great. I see something new each time I watch this film. I just read about all the goofs in the film, which I now have to try and catch the next time I see it. I just love Rosaline Russell in this. It was meant for her I'm sure. I was disappointed when I saw the version with Lucille Ball. Didn't like it at all. Well I'm off to have a coffee and a side car and dust all my books which are so decorative, don't cha think???

"Ten-year old orphan Patrick Dennis has come to live with his nearest relative, and in the high times ahead, he's not going to believe his luck. Nor will you, because Patrick's relation is played by one of Hollywood's greatest dames. Reprising her Broadway triumph, Rosalind Russell won her fourth 'Oscar' nomination and third 'Golden Globe' award as the marvelous madcap who lives life to the hilt. 'Auntie Mame' brings to bubbly life the mayhem Mame and her cronies create while guiding Patrick's fortunes. 'Life is a banquet,' Mame says, 'and most poor suckers are starving to death!' With wit, style and a seasoned cast to dish humor and heart with gusto, 'Auntie Mame' is a full course meal of entertainment magic," according to the DVD sleeve description.It's difficult to believe the play was this long… but, an intermission and the change to see Ms. Russell perform the role live world have mor…

I'm giving this movie two stars instead of zero because Rosalind Russell is beautifully cast, but it hasn't got a lot else going for it. It can be added to the very long list of films based on books which strip the original of every quality that made it a story worth telling to begin with. It's not only a rotten adaptation, it's a pretty dim excuse for a movie in its own right.Patrick Dennis's novel *Auntie Mame: an Irreverent Escapade* is not only hysterically funny, it is also very sweet and touching. But — and this is what the movie missed — it never gets drippy or sentimental. In the book, Mame has a lot of good points, but she's also really rather wicked. Her relationship with her nephew is largely based on bribery, blackmail, and deceit, even though they really do love each other. They just express it in unconventional ways.For some reason the film makers decided to portray Gloria as unattractive — beautiful, but insufferable — making you wonder why P…
