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.
Plot: Ten-year-old orphan Patrick Dennis has come to live with his marvelously madcap Auntie Mame, who lives life to the hilt. “Life is a banquet,” Mame says, “and most poor suckers are starving to death!”

Mame is Alive
St. Iranaeous said it: “The glory of God is man fully alive.”
Auntie Mame in her own way lives this life. This may not appear to be a deep movie. But, Mame lives a life that as Agnes Gooch says “I see what she’s been living. And I see what I’ve been missing.” She doesn’t miss a moment. She’s a caricature for so many of the things that go wrong with “growing up” and becoming “mature and responsible”. At the end of the day Mame shows the possibilities of a life led to the full. Of a life that is truly vital and alive. This is a movie everyone who wants to leave this world without leaving money on the table should watch and take to heart. Mame is childlike, fun, and living without fear of what others think. This is on my top 10 list.
Magnificent Mame: An Essential
The Patrick Dennis novel was a runaway bestseller–and it was soon followed by a stage version starring Rosalind Russell, who was born to play the madcap Mame in this story of an eccentric, fast-living society woman of the 1920s who “inherits” her nephew when her brother died. The film version is virtually perfect in every possible way. Determined to “open doors” for her adoring nephew, Mame exposes to him everything from bootleg gin to oddball characters–all the while doing battle with her nephew’s ultra-conservative trustee, who is equally determined that the boy’s life remain free of “certain influences.” This is a knockout show, and Rosalind Russell delivers a knockout performance in it–easily her finest comedy performance since 1939’s THE WOMEN and 1940’s HIS GIRL Friday. She is extremely well supported by the sadly under-acknowledged Coral Brown in the role of Vera Charles, an actress who passes out in Mame’s apartment with considerable regularity, and Forrest Tucker as the Southern gentleman who becomes her knight in shining honor; the supporting cast, which includes Fred Clark, Peggy Cass (particularly memorable as Agnes Gooch, Jan Handzlik, Roger Smith, and Joanna Barnes is equally flawless.
The infamous “production code” was still somewhat in force when AUNTIE MAME was filmed, and consequently several of the play’s most famous lines had to be re-written–but this scarcely gets in the way of Russell and company, and director DaCosta offers a brilliant compromise between the art of cinema and the “set piece” nature of the stage show. The production values are rich, the score is memorable, and everything about the show is a tremendous amount of fun; by the time it ends, you’ll wish that Auntie Mame was yours.
Although there were a few minutes when I felt the film had been slightly cropped, the DVD version offers a visually stunning print of the film in its original ratio, and the sound is quite good as well. The few extras are nothing to speak of–but frankly, it hardly matters: this is one film you’ll be glad to have on DVD, for you’re likely to wear out a VHS in short order. If you need a good laugh, especially one with a slightly satirical edge, you’ll adore AUNTIE MAME from start to finish. One of my favorite films, and strongly recommended.
