Description by OLDIES.com:
Incomparable comic character actress Zasu Pitts is Emma, a spinster who is called "Aunt" by all who love her. To the great disapproval of her old maid sisters, Emma pines for the late "Gentleman Jim," and dreams of her youth when she was romanced by the legendary boxer.
Emma reads about "Gentleman Jim's" troubled son, Mickey O'Banion, and his upcoming championship fight with Tiger Wilson. Emma heads out to the big city on a mission to help the boy, who, if things had turned out differently, might well have been her son.
In the city, Emma is mistaken for notorious lady gangster Ma Parker and becomes innocently involved in a mob war. Assuming the identity and attitude of the hard-boiled Ma Parker, Emma realizes that she will be better able to help Mickey's career in disguise.
A rich comedy thick with intricate complications and a triumphant star performance by Zasu Pitts, So's Your Aunt Emma is a touching character study of a sweet little old lady who sets things right after many years of living in the shadows of her fading memories.
When the severe spinstress Zasu Pitts visits the city she is mistaken for the notorious murderess Ma Parker.
