Travels with My Aunt (17-Dec-1972)

Director: George Cukor

Writers: Jay Presson Allen; Hugh Wheeler

From novel: Travels with My Aunt by Graham Greene

Music: Tony Hatch

Producers: Robert Fryer; James Cresson

Keywords: Comedy

A subdued and uptight bank clerk is enlisted by his eccentric Aunt Augusta to rescue her from a blackmail attempt; they paint Europe red. Wonderful scenery. Although an enjoyable film, Maggie Smith plays up her role perhaps too much; the story is shallow. Won an Oscar for Best Costume Design; received additional nominations for Best Actress, Best Cinematography, and Best Set Decoration.
