Legendary Lucille Ball heads an all-star cast in her final feature film appearance. This lush screen adaptation of the Broadway musical hit "Auntie Mame" continues the story of the eccentric Mame who believes that "life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death." Co-starring Oscar-nominee Robert Preston ("Victor/Victoria") and TV's "Golden Girl" Beatrice Arthur.
If you have ever read the Patrick Dennis books then DO NOT watch this film!
The story line doesn't follow with many key areas missed out, characters are not there and those that are are not true. Over to the performance... average at best, Lucille Ball doesn't fit the bill in my opinion. There are some great costumes and lavish musical numbers but really, it could and should be much better.
