1958, Warner Bros., 143 min, Dir: Morton DaCosta

Rosalind Russell is in fine form as the jet-setting Park Avenue aunt who suddenly becomes guardian to her young nephew. Free-spirited Mame takes the boy on irreverent escapades through the bohemian 1920s, the ravages of the Great Depression, the tribulations of her many loves and her plea for social justice. "Live! Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!" - Auntie Mame.
