Sharp-witted, zippy comedy about a woman who lives life to the absolute fullest. When her orphaned 10-year-old nephew shows up on her doorstep, a new life begins for both. Mame's digs provide a cool look at what the 1950s considered bohemian hip, too. Later became the Broadway warhorse, Mame.

Auntie Mame is a woman who celebrates life and refuses to let anything depress her. When the stockmarket crashs in 1929, she gets a rich husband; when he falls off a mountain, she writes a book about it. Her central task is trying to save her stuffy nephew from the fate of boredom.
Film bears close resemblance to the stage version, only with the more risqué sections cleaned up to meet the film industry's standards.
