  1. Great classic movie. This scene is so funny.

  2. The little kid is kind of a punk, but he’s a perfect foil for Mame.

  3. Rosalind Russell is of course wonderful in this reasonably entertaining comedy.

  4. I like the first half better when she’s all drunk and irresponsible (I wonder why!). The second half where she shapes up and it gets all sentimental I’m less crazy about, but eh… you take what you can get.
