Auntie Mame (1958) Film Review

Auntie Mame
DIRECTOR Morton DaCosta
I must admit that I am not a huge fan of Rosalind Russell, so I fail to see the glory in her performance as gay writer Patrick Dennis’ beloved Auntie Mame. However, most of my gay friends go into a kind of fugue state at the very mention of her name.
Gay director Morton DaCosta (his real name) directs like he is still in the theatre – he did better in his second and final visit to Hollywood with “The Music Man” four years later. The film is notable for its lesbian character Vera Charles, played by gay actress Coral Browne. We shall meet Ms. Browne again in more Queer Films!
