Travels With My Aunt (1972)

Travels With My Aunt is Auntie Mame with an adult nephew, no humor and no emotional core. Maggie Smith (as directed by George Cukor) is a bit much as Aunt Augusta but early career performances by Louis Gossett, Jr. and Cindy Williams make up for it. All in all though, travel with a different companion because this aunt is kind of a bore.
