“Auntie Mame” quotes(1958)
Plot – Little Patrick, orphaned at ten, is in the care of his aunt Mame, an eccentric lady that shines for her spirit and dynamism in the most elegant New York society of 1928. The Crash of 1929 takes most of Aunt Mame's wealth, forcing her to give up her high-society life style and to look for a job. With good will she makes attempts in various fields of activities but she is regularly fired after a short time for her incompetence. At Christmas Aunt Mame and Patrick are invited to spend the holidays at the villa of Beauregard Burnside, who will marry Aunt Mame. Patrick, now a young man, returns home with his girlfriend, a beautiful but dull girl, the true representative of the nouveau riche. Patrick eventually marries the new secretary of his aunt and fathers Michael, to whom Mame will dedicate her care, instilling her own dynamic optimism.
