Within weeks of publication in 1955, the novel AUNTIE MAME by Patrick Dennis was a bestseller. The subsequent stageplay was likewise a phenomenal success. Here Disney publicist Richard Jordan chronicles four decades of Mame-mania--the true backstage story of how one larger-than-life character rescued Rosalind Russell from career oblivion, catapulted Angela Lansbury to stardom, and nearly destroyed Lucille Ball. 40 photos.
