Format: DVD
The flamboyant, vibrant socialite Mame is the quintessential roaring 20's flapper, with a huge desire to live life to enjoy it. Into her world comes her orphaned nephew Patrick. Immediately the two fall in love with each other, and she spends the rest of the movie, which takes us through the Great Depression and beyond, trying to rescue him from the stuffy, conventionalist people he's used to.

This is one of my old time favorite movies. It is funny, entertaining, makes you sometimes cry, you will laugh a lot and a great lesson to be yourself, individual and not just keep in line what one is suppose to think and how one has to behave.

For Rosalind Russel (1907-1976) it proved to be the role of her life. Her most performance in the title role of the long-running stage hit Auntie Mame and the subsequent movie version is just memorable. When asked which role she was most closely identified with, she replied that strangers who spotted her still called out, "Hey, Auntie Mame!". Russell was nominated for an Academy Award and won a Golden Globe for her portrayal.

You will love this movie!!
Please can I rate it with 10 stars

It is worth going out and buying a multiregion DVD just to settle down and enjoy Rosalind Russell crashing into and out of the lives of so many people. Rosalind Russell brings to the silver screen possibly the performance of her career and enchants all who have seen this madcap tale that is actually quite ahead of its time in some of its thoughts on female independance and the crass obsessions of the white middle classes in America. But enough of the serious stuff! Buy this DVD to enjoy the gags, the double entendres and yes dammit the hats!

Format: DVD
DELIGHTFUL COMEDY ABOUT AN ECCENTRIC AUNTIE WHO WANTS TO SHOW HER YOUNG NEPHEW THE ALTERNATIVE LIFE STYLE -this is a delightful comedy which has wry humour ,witty dialogues ,great props ,and an intelligent satirical approach to the way wealth and social trimmings can affect the human behaviour and relationships ,it is both camp and at times a very black comedy with an exaggerated tone.

if you like rosalind russell you must watch this timeless parody of the of the nouveau rich elite and what is true class and utter tastelessness and how the script celebrates it as a travesty of the american east coast snobbery and double standards and hypocritical social attitudes -its rosalind russell's best movie ever and the chic cynical tone with a really bohemian lifestyle is a tribute to the human spirit of freedom -its a total laugh riot and sardonically gleeful to the last frame without any mercy or false sentimentality for its memorable central character who goes from being immensely wealthy to dirt poor and then offensively rich in a cycle that represents a metaphorical social paradigm .
a truly literary and spoofy celebration of the bourgeois snobbery while the artistic accessories with the vivid colours and costumes make it a visual delight ,but it is the tongue in cheek pseudo morality of the less fortunate characters which make this a memorable experience .

What a fantastic film! This truly is a classic adventure lived through the characters of Auntie Mame and her nephew, Patrick. The pair come from two different worlds, hers being of parties and the good life, and Patrick from a sober world controlled by his father. When Patrick's father dies the two are thrown together under the supervision of Mr Babcock from the Knickerboker Bank, who is instructed to do all that he can to prevent Patrick turning out anything like his Aunt. How will Patrick turn out? Will he carry on to fulfill the destiny his father has set for him or will he learn to love the freedom that his Auntie Mame offers? There are so many adventures on the way as Patrick learns about the world and what 'living' really is.
It is hard to watch this film without taking something from it, whether it be how to mix the perfect Martini or how to live,live,live! One thing is sure, you will fall in love with Auntie Mame and realise that everybody should have one!

I cannot praise this film highly enough. Rosalind Russell is fabulous, in the title role, and owns the screen every time she is in shot. The whole cast is superb, especially Jan Handzlik (as the young Patrick Denis), Coral Browne (as Vera), and Peggy Cass (Agnes Gooch). The relationship between the young Patrick, and his gloriously eccentric aunt is touching and believable, without being too saccharine, and the film always leaves me feeling really good inside. It is uplifting, immaculately acted, and a thoroughly satisfying comedy. I wish I had an Auntie Mame in my family.

Sunday afternoon films don't come more sumptuously mounted than this 1956 feel good widescreen epic Auntie Mame.
Rosalind Russell and a well oiled cast effortlessly bounce through the amazingly scripted, engaging story. A role Ms Russell played on stage for several years, along with other notable actresses such as Murder She Wrote' Angela Landsbury, and Silvia Sydney, last seen in Tim Burton's Mars Attacks!
What I would have given to see all three versions on stage, but thankfully Warner Bros. have released and as of 2010 rereleased this perennial classic (in my household) for future generations to discover.

I hope others enjoy the film packed to the rafters with too many quotable lines for one banquet.
