There is a musical version called "Mame" starring Lucille Ball which is also pretty great.
You will be a huge Rosalind Russell fan if you invest the time to watch this.
And who knew that Forest Tucker of F Troop fame could look so amazing :)
Here is another. Merry Hall by Beverly Nichols. If you have friends that are gardeners and Anglophiles this book is a must. It was written after WWII by journalist Beverly Nichols about his purchasing Merry Hall and his adventures there. This is the first book in the trilogy and I recommend them all.
Well, I think I will stitch and finish watching the movie :)
