Get movies starring Julie Andrews on VHS, DVD, or Blue-Ray from
Everyone knows that Julie Andrews can sing and
dance and that she shines in musicals, whether live on stage or in the movies. That doesn't necessarily
mean she can act. But she can. Catch her in Victor/Victoria, the movie. Victor/Victoria
started as a Broadway musical, then transfromed to the silver screen. This is not your typical Julie
Andrews musical, however. It is not anything like The Sound of Music or Mary Poppins. It is a
play or a movie with music included and Julie Andrews does the gender bender job of both Victor and Victoria
as no one else could. She is funny, glamorous and talented. She is, of course, a musical star as
well. I have to say, though, that I was really peeved when Disney cast her as Mary Poppins.
Anyone who read the grand old children's book will remember the real Mary as a homely, curmudgeonly old dame
that barely tolerated the children for which she served as nanny. A spoonful of sugar, indeed.
