♥ life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death! ~auntie mame

at the recommendation of my bff, timothy,
i watched the classic film, auntie mame (1958), this weekend-
and i absolutely LOVED it!

adapted from a novel by patrick dennis & the theatrical adaptation
with some of the same actors- like leading lady, rosalind russell,
 this film has almost as many set changes as the characters 
have wardrobe changes- and each chapter of the film 
ends with a darkened screen, which is reminiscent
of a curtain closing.

since i cannot tell you which was more inspiring:

the interior design or the costume design-
i will share a mixture of both. 


3 ♥ love notes.:

  1. yes! isn't this movie divine?! i watched it for the first time about 6 months ago. so fabulous

  2. I played Auntie Mame in high school! Definitely one of my favorite roles and most treasured memories. I had seventeen costume changes, which for a high school production is quite a lot and I loved every single one of them! Sigh. Thanks for this trip down memory lane.

  3. wowza! i now know what i'll be watching this weekend... :)


♥ tell me how you really feel!
