When shy young heir Patrick is orphaned at the tender age of ten, the only family he has is his wealthy and eccentric aunt, a fabulous New York socialite named Mame. While prone to dramatic costumes, flights of fancy and expensive whims - not least her lives as a muse and a Southern belle - Auntie Mame will raise Patrick the only way she knows how: with humour, mishaps, unforgettable friends and lots and lots of love. Turned into a play, musical and two films, Auntie Mame is the most magnificent and hilarious work of love, style, wit and the life of a very modern aunt.
