17 thoughts on “WCW: Julie Andrews

  1. Mary Poppins (also in the DNA) and Victor Victoria. I need to track down Star.

  2. I remember seeing “Hawaii” in theaters! The book was all the rage then and the film was interesting because I knew zero about Hawaii. There were some complaints about artistic license and incorrect history at the time.
    Also “Thoroughly Modern Millie” is the 1st film I ever noticed the costumes. I like the film even though it gets convoluted and a bit loopy at the end.

  3. My father issued Julie Andrews’ visa in the early 60’s when he worked at the US Embassy in London. He loved having contact with all those British actors, but JA was a huge favorite. He thought she was adorable.

  4. The only thing I remember about “Thoroughly Modern Millie” is Carole Channing yelling Raspberries!

  5. The Americanization of Emily with James Garner is very good but as it deals with WWII, it probably doesn’t have much costume content. It’s very pointed about war and patriotism and she gets out of her ‘sweet’ box somewhat.

  6. We recently watched Hawaii. Julie is pretty much the only sympathetic white character in the film. An excellent portrayal of the evils of colonialism and missionaries.

  7. I regret that we didn’t get a chance to see a JA in a big Hollywood production of My Fair Lady, where she could have used her own singing voice!

  8. I love and adore Maria’s amazing wedding dress in the Sound of Music. I’m also very fond of that white dress in Mary Poppins.

  9. I never understood why Disney set “Mary Poppins” in the Edwardian era. The books are set in the 1930s, when they were written.

  10. I remember a friend and I being at a local video when we came across Millie on the shelf. We had never heard of it and were intrigued. Plus, it had Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Channing. How could two fashion and theater obsessed high schoolers resist?

  11. Saw her live when Victor/Victoria was adapted into a Broadway musical – magic!

    She’s also great as Nanny in the Eloise films.
