Auntie Mame

Auntie-Mame

On my flight home I got to see the delightful Auntie Mame with Rosalind Russell. How did I escape this film? Well, I was born too late, that’s one reason.

The story revolves around free spirt Mame, who becomes the guardian of her nephew Patrick, who’s orphaned. She’s a smart, unconventional, vivacious woman who lives life to the fullest. When she enrolls Patrick in a school with clothing optional, the bank trustee ships him off to boarding school.

Too bad. While she’s unorthodox, she does love Patrick and there was never any signs that he’d become a danger to himself or society. He would have wound up much less of a stick in the mud if he stayed with her. Yet their relationship continues and they remain connected as Mame travels the world, marries and is soon widowed.

The film is smart, funny and entertaining. Few comedies, if any, nowadays strike the notes Auntie Mame does. It’s a real treasure.
