Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The steady hand of George Cukor and the grand manner of Maggie Smith bring Graham Greene's lovely novel to spiffy life. Smith, fresh off her 1970 Oscar® win for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, plays the larger-than-life Aunt Augusta, free spirit and committed eccentric (a role originally considered for Katharine Hepburn). She drags her starchy nephew (Alec McCowen), whose biggest adventure in life thus far has been tending his fine English garden, into a series of globe-trotting escapades. Cukor, one of Hollywood's most accomplished veterans at this point, keeps the episodic action moving while incorporating flashbacks to Augusta's flamboyant career as a bon vivant. He also creates a stage for Maggie Smith, who swells into the largeness and age of the role--she's actually almost a decade younger than Alec McCowen. Equally good is McCowen, who did delicious work as the dogged inspector in Hitchcock's Frenzy the same year. --Robert Horton

From the Back Cover

From Academy Award-winning director George Cukor comes an enchanting tale of an unconventional lady who brings style, class and grace to smuggling, hustling and swindling. At her sister's funeral, Aunt Augusta (Oscar winner Maggie Smith)-a spirited woman of indeterminate years-befriends her bereft nephew, Henry (Alec McCowen)-a stodgy middle-aged banker who's only passion is caring for his prize dahlias. But before poor Henry can say "green thumb" twice, Aunt Augusta whisks him into a series of bizarre misadventures, which transport them throughout Europe and transform Henry into a virile and vibrant man about town.
Scripted by Jay Presson Allen and Hugh Wheeler from the best-selling novel by Graham Green, Travels with My Aunt is a "delightful, sophisticated fare" (Movies on TV and Videocassette). Co-starring Lou Gossett Jr. (An Officer and a Gentlemen) and Cindy Williams (American Graffiti), this "grand rollicking adventure... is a hilarious yet poignant offbeat romantic comedy that is a triumph of exquisite style and sensibility" (The Los Angeles Times).
