Bea Arthur has confessed that she had reservations about making this film, but agreed to do so in order to work with her (then) husband, director Gene Saks. In a 2008 interview, she called the film "a disaster."
Can I slide down the banister?
Mame: Well, why not.
Young Patrick: My father would never let me.
Mame: That's too bad. You must come from a dreadful family.
Young Patrick: I only have one relative in the whole world.
Mame: Oh, really, dear? And who is that?
Young Patrick: You.
Agnes: That's right.
Mame: Who are you?
Agnes: Agnes Gooch.
When Mame, Agnes, Ito, and Patrick are preparing to dine with Beau, Mame remarks, "I never thought Santa Claus would look so much like Rhett Butler." This part of the movie is set in the early Great Depression, well before Gone with the Wind (1939) or even the book (1936) was released.
