This is an amazing film, it's 50 years old this year but it's just, well, amazing. Seriously, I cannot stress how quick witted and fabulously cast this film is, it's perfection on film. It's also on youtube in full.
I have, and really, why try to remake perfection? I certainly don't love Lucy. But I do love Rosalind but there is one slight flaw with the film, Babcock says that Patricks trust is invested in safe stocks and shares so he has control of the finances, but when the market crashes and Mame loses all her money, it is said because they also invested in safe shares, but Patick remains at boarding school.
I've always loved this film if not for the style alone. The end scenes where the apartment is done mid century modern with mobiles everywhere is to die for. As for the musical version, it's hard to see there's so much Vaseline on the lens to make Lucy look somewhere near the age of the character. Poor Angela Lansbury was robbed.
