"Auntie Mame" is one of my all-time favorite comedies. Rosalind Russell gives a tour-de-force performance as the eccentric Mame Dennis, teaching her nephew all about the joys of life. She was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar, and it's a shame she didn't win. The rest of the cast is fantastic; i.e. Forrest Tucker, Coral Browne, Peggy Cass, Joanna Barnes, Lee Patrick, Fred Clark and Roger Smith. Mame liked to keep her interior decorators busy-every time you see her apartment it has a new motif! Her famous line says it all-"Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving!"
A hilarious, touching and dazzling film. Russell won the Golden Globe for Best Actress as an eccentric aunt who teaches her nephew to live; Cass was nominated for an Oscar and Barnes was nominated for a special Golden Globe. The colourful scenery and costumes are visual cavalcades that fit well into the story with the always-present life message. A film where viewers sit back, relax and prepare themselves for an entertaining comedy. I give it a 4.5/5.
This movie is so good! Full of laughs! A must see for anyone!
This movie is so good. Full of laughs!
I became Auntie Mame!
Since the first time I saw this movie I tried to become Auntie Mame. It worked wonderfully well with my four children and with my classroom students. Now I am old, retired, and still believe that "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!"

This is a great movie and will last through the ages, Her part as aunte Mame ,I will always enjoyed and reminded me of one of my favorite aunts who use to dress in black was very sheek and traveled all over the world with great stories and allways brought something back from her travels , the movie brings happy tears to my eyes every time I see it and will till the day I die , the ending is as good as the begining and will make you laugh through the whole movie the antics and gags are great, anyone who wants to see a good movie this one is for you .

Oh Agnes, Where is Your Spine?
What's not to love in this gloriously campy film? The film is a rich banquet of sublime costumes, decadent attitudes, eccentric characters, and iconic performances. I first saw the film one New Year's Eve many years ago in Champaign, Il, so it has become a tradition among my friends and me to watch it every Dec. 31st. An absolute must for anyone with a quirky camp sensibility --you'll be repeating the lines in no time!
Life is a banquet...
This is one of the great and archetypal sophisticated comedies of the late 1950's. Rosalind Russell is a delight as the ebullient and eccentric Mame Dennis. No matter what the circumstance (from the loss of her own fortune to losing her beloved and wealthy husband later on), Mame keeps going, full speed ahead and she will never say die. "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death," she said famously. The script is clever and witty, the music sparkles, the supporting roles are well cast, but it's Rosalind Russell's film all the way - and she is superb!
I love this movie, I saw it first when I was 14 and it only gets better with age. (I am now 36) This is a movie for the entire family, it is a clasic story of hope and everything that goes with it. I will never forget that "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death. Live Live Live".

Rosalind Russell as the free-spirited Auntie Mame steals the show in this fun comedy. A must-see for any Russell fan.
