Auntie Mame

A hilarious comedy that features the classy and eccentric Rosalind Russell, who redecorates her house practically once a year, as the title character. Her brother passed away and she is left to take care of his son. She wants to show him the world, but the Great Depression and marriage sort of gets in the way. Unusual characters, including a drunk actress, a strange butler, a nerdy secretary, a spoiled fiancee and odd in-laws makes "Auntie Mame" delightful. Entertaining, interesting and highly recommended.
