AUNTIE MAME (1958) New to Blu-ray with a 2017 1080p HD Remaster!
Rosalind Russell delivers a career-high performance as the quintessential Bohemian bon vivant Bodhisattva Mame, who saves her beloved nephew Patrick (Jan Handzlik as young Patrick, Roger Smith as young adult Patrick) from a life un-lived. When young, impressionable Patrick Dennis' millionaire father dies, the boy is left in the care of his flamboyant, extravagant, devil-may-care and never-dull Auntie Mame. Despite the best efforts of others to rear young Patrick as a boring, stuffy aristocrat, the lad gets swept up into Mame Dennis' Jazz Age New York world of parties, flappers and the most eccentric, entertaining, intelligent set of friends anywhere. Directed by Morton DaCosta, from the stage adaptation of the Patrick Dennis novel by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, with a stellar support cast (including Forrest Tucker, Pippa Scott, Coral Browne and Joanna Barnes), DaCosta keeps the sentiment and the insanity on track for a life-affirming finish. Just in time for the holidays, Auntie Mame enchants like never before thanks to this effervescent, iridescent high definition master on 1080p HD Blu-ray Disc. Special Features: Music only audio track; Auntie Mame and Mame original theatrical trailers (HD). 16×9 Letterbox
