Tending dahlias in suburban London, bank manager Henry (Alec McCowen) takes a call from aunt Augusta (Maggie Smith) warning that police may be seeking her boyfriend's contraband mingled with the ashes of his newly-deceased mother, in Travels With My Aunt, 1972, from the Graham Greene novel.
Opening scene, introduction of Maggie Smith as Aunt Augusta, in some panic, her not quite introduced nephew Henry (Alec McCowen) in the front pew, in George Cukor's film from the Graham Greene novel, Travels With My Aunt, 1972.
Toting the ashes of the woman he believed to be his mother, Henry (Alec McCowen) is hustled away by his previously-thought-dead Aunt Augusta (Maggie Smith) to her London flat where he meets her live-in Wordsworth, (Louis Gossett Jr.), early in George Cukor's Travels With My Aunt, 1972.

"They're killing him bit by bit!" Flamboyant, flame-haired 70-plus Augusta Bertram has opened a package containing a finger that recently belonged to her years-ago lover. The victim's kidnappers continue mailing expendable body parts, and Augusta enlists the aid of her stuffy nephew in a mad to-the-rescue adventure across Europe in pursuit of $100,000 in ransom money. The scramble to save a life just might also liberate the nephew's life-starved soul. Based on one of Graham Greene's drollest novels, directed with élan by George Cukor, and starring the magnificent Maggie Smith as Augusta and nimble Alec McCowen as bewildered nephew Henry, the joyously cockeyed Travels with My Aunt won a Best Costume Design Academy Award® (out of four nominations*) and a valise full of critical praise.
