Mames (Count'em: 1, 2, 3...)

 Jerry Herman's Mame, 1966...

 and Angela Lansbury was the first...
of the musical Mames!
She was followed in that role by Celeste Holm, Ann Miller,
Janis Paige, Dee Hoty, Christine!

Lucille Ball tried her hand at the movie version,
in 1974. "Tried" being the definitive word here.
And then of course, Rosalind Russell, in the 1958 movie,
"Auntie Mame," based on the novel by Patrick Dennis...
Here she is, throwing that delightful dinner party with 
Fred Clark as Dwight Babcock...
Rattlesnake, anyone?
