  • Based upon Graham Greene's best-selling novel, TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT follows the misadventures of a free-spirited woman, Augusta (Maggie Smith), who whisks her priggish banker nephew, Henry (Alec McCowen), across Europe in search of ransom money for her kidnapped ex-lover (Robert Stephens). Henry agrees to come along with his eccentric aunt after his mother's funeral, and as circumstances quickly progress from strange to dire, the meek and mild Henry finds himself caught up in an adventure beyond his wildest dreams.

    McCowen gives a subtle performance as the young banker forced to peel away layers of reserve as he adapts to this chaotic adventure. He serves as the perfect foil for Smith, who received an Academy Award nomination for her enthusiastically zany embrace of the unpredictable aunt. Director George Cukor (THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, GASLIGHT) expertly plays the two wildly contrasting lead characters off one another, sending the film gamboling ever forward with Aunt Augusta while never allowing the emotional center of the film--McCowen's timorous banker--to be left behind.
