Open a New Window
I paint to movies and Auntie Mame is on Netflix currently as an instant watch. I remember checking the Rosalind Russell movie out from my library as a kid and thinking it was the longest thing I'd ever seen in my life. I enjoyed it, and watched it twice, but I'd never seen a movie that spanned so much time in one person's life. The little boy grew up! ...completely! I was shocked.
I'm more of a Johnny-come-lately to the musical, Mame. I discovered it five or six years ago. Jerry Herman gets called to task for simple songs, but I enjoy them. They're upbeat, up tempo and brash. So is Mame.
My painting could have benefited from an extra hour. We'll call this a character study and assume Mame re-emerges in a different light.
