Auntie Mame

Film, Drama
0 Love It

Later adapted into a Broadway musical (and one of the all-time dire movies with Lucille Ball), this is the first screen version of Patrick Dennis's novel, set during the inter-war years when the larger-than-life Mame adopts a young orphan and shows the littl'un exactly how to have a high old time of it. Sadly, the movie's loud, lumpen and hellishly over-extended, notwithstanding Russell's force-of-nature star turn.
