Auntie Mame is a 1958 comedy drama movie, directed by Morton DaCosta and starring Rosalind Russell, based on the novel of the same name by Patrick Dennis. When young Patrick Dennis (Jan Handzlik) is orphaned following the unexpected death of his father, he finds himself in the care of his father's sister, the eccentric Mame (Rosalind Russell). Auntie Mame's flamboyant lifestyle is very different from the one Patrick was used to, under the care of his straight laced father, but he enjoys it. That is, until Dr. Dwight Babcock (Fred Clark), the executor of the vast fortune that Patrick's father left him, arrives on the scene and his disapproval taints everything. Dr. Babcock wishes to provide Patrick with more structure, which includes signing him up for a strict boarding school. The film chronicles Patrick's life as he grows up under the influence of a variety of individuals, with various personalities and ideas of what he should be and become, and follows him as he discovers who he truly is. Auntie Mame was nominated for six 1959 Oscars, as well as another three awards, and it won six awards, including the prestigious Golden Laurel and Golden Globe Awards.moreless
