I can't agree. Norah, Gooch, and even Brian O'Bannion are one-dimensional but sharply etched comic characters in AUNTIE MAME. By combining the first two, and eliminating the third, much of their bite and humor is lost in MAME. The unwed mother subplot is not only very much of its time; it's the type of "unpopular" cause Auntie Mame would rally to. The second act of MAME is much flatter without it. Peggy Cass gets a good deal of humor out of Agnes' pregnancy in the film. After all, single motherhood, as we have come to know it, is not a sin, it's a choice.
