Rosalind Russell stars in the film version of the Patrick Dennis novel about his eccentric, flamboyant, life-loving aunt. Her message: "Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!" Mame takes in poor, orphaned Patrick (Jan Handzlik), and together they confront the Depression and unusual adventures. The cast also includes Peggy Cass as her befuddled secretary Agnes Gooch, Coral Browne as her best friend Vera, and Forrest Tucker as Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside, one of several husbands. The pic received 6 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture.
