Synopsis:

Remember darlings, "Life's a banquet, and most suckers are starving to death." That tag line sums up this exuberant and immensely amusing 1958 comedy that can be seen repeatedly, as it never grows stale. Rosalind Russell plays the flamboyant aunt who takes in poor, orphaned Patrick, played with sophisticated ease by Jan Handzlik. Mame, all glitter and martinis, raises her nephew in a world filled with acceptance and her oddball literati friends. Nothing is too bohemian. This unfolds in colorful episodic segments that allow us to watch Patrick grow as Mame oversees his unusual upbringing while she juggles a few spouses and an extended household. Russell, who created the title role for the stage, simply shines. She is bright and brassy, but never goes too far over the top. Peggy Cass is a comedic delight as her befuddled secretary, and Coral Browne brings class to the production as her best friend. This was based on the exuberant stage play, which in turn was based on Patrick Dennis's humorous, bittersweet novel. The screen version was written by the clever duo of Betty Comden and Adolph Green.

There's drama, heart-touching moments, and a ton of humor. Do yourself a favor and get this movie. It's one the best ever made!

Being a visual artist, images in a film is important to me. The most impressive in this film is the costumes Auntie Mame is wearing. How beautiful and creative that fashion is! The second impressive is the interior design of Auntie Mame's house. Just viewing her clothing and house alone entertains me in a great deal.

I believe other reviewers can tell you how funny the story is and how adorable Auntie Mame's character is. I omit that part of review in order to avoid the repetitiveness of how fun this film is.

THIS IS NOT A DVD!!! THIS IS A 12" LASERDISC AND WILL NOT PLAY IN A DVD PLAYER
