      From 1958, Rosalind Russell stars as the eccentric Mame Dennis, better known as Auntie Mame. She’s a woman who follows her own drummer and doesn’t care what society things. With spunk and pizzazz, Russell makes us love Mame, and she takes us on a full journey with her. We see Mame at her best and worst, in good times and in bad.

      We see her in despair and we see her when she refuses to give in and fights on no matter what.

      The parts I like the best are the ones when Mame finds love and marries her beau, aptly portrayed by Forrest Tucker. He’s bigger than life, just like she is. Their scenes together are a hoot. It’s two stunning characters getting ...


      • together and falling in love. I adore it.

        A lot of the angst from Mame comes from whether or not she can take care of her young, orphaned charge. She’s his aunt, but the government isn’t sure she’s fit to take care of the young boy. Naturally, it all works out and an incredible bond forms between Mama and Patrick Dennis. Patrick

        is played superbly as a child by Jan Handzlik. He’s there for half of the film with Roger Smith taking over for the older, adult Patrick.

        The ending is other bit I enjoy. It’s Mame as we love to remember her, and Patrick knows it.

        Auntie Mame is fun. There’s plenty of story here, and with a strong cast that includes Peggy Cass, it’s a winner.
