Gonna be a lot of fights here over Julie Andrews movies.  Probably worse than a Last Jedi thread. Try to keep it civil, everyone.

I went to a cocktail party with Julie Andrews once. She flashed a tit. Just one tit. It was nice.

For many years during the 80s and 90s they used to play The Sound of Music on a rival station during the Super Bowl. I grew up in a family of girls. Like, all girls. This was back when we had a single TV and no cable.

You can imagine how well that went over with my dad and I.

Personally, I'd put Victor/Victoria ahead of Thoroughly Modern Millie, but that's just me.  Andrews, plus James Garner, Robert Preston, Lesley Ann Warren, and Alex Karras playing a gay bodyguard make it hard to beat.

Also, the article missed The Tamarind Seed.  A completely forgettable movie, but its omission left the completionist in me itching.

Too many earworms.

Mary Poppins was an economic terrorist of a witch who set things in motion to cause at least a two day run on the bank, something that had not happened since the Boston Tea Party.  A minor casualty was Mr. Banks' job.  It is unknown if the family would have to sell the house on Cherry Tree Lane, or what might become of the children, but that was not important.  Mary Poppins had completed her mission.

Happy Birthday, Julie Andrews!

i just checked out the critic's reviews at Tomatoes, and if you factor out the Edglord votes, it's pretty high.

An interesting aside: Ms. Andrews originated the role of Eliza Doolittle on Broadway. When the movie was conceived the studio brass felt she didn't have the star power to make the film work, so they hired Audrey Hepburn for the part. Knowing her disappointment, her agent schedules her meeting with Disney for Mary Poppins.

The rest is history.

It's overly-long, and the 2nd half of the movie is a major tonal shift from the 1st half, with few memorable songs.

I began my first viewing of Sound of Music in it's entirety in an unwilling state of mind as I was obviously too cool for it when I was the wizened and embittered age of 14. I melted like an Arizona ice cube.

The loss of her singing voice hit me at the same level as when I found that Linda Ronstadt at lost her ability to sing so well.

I have it on DVD and regularly rewatch. My opinion only, but it is still an utter delight.

My only complaint is the music sets itself to near month-long random earworm.

Sorry.

S.O.B. is one of my all time favorite movies, and not just for that scene. The whole bit with the corpse is perfect, the writing was awesome and Robert Preston was amazing.

Mary Poppins and Sound of Music are tied for tops.  Zero points for the rest of them combined.  Yes, I'm a child, so what.

My Dad would have said one of two things, "I bought the TV", or "This is not a democracy, this is a benevolent Dictatorship", and we would watch what he wanted.  and one of the kids was the remote control.  Mom didn't watch TV, so she didn't care much.

I agree with the top 3 but I think they are in the wrong order.

Mine:
1) "Victor/Victoria"
2) "Thoroughly Modern Millie"
3) "Mary Poppins"

"Sound of Music" is in the right place. Great movie and she was excellent but it was a bit too treacly for me. I do have great memories of going to see it with Mom in the theater, the only time she took me to a movie (usually it was Dad taking all of us kids to see a John Wayne movie).

Was one of the other kids the one who would hold the rabbit ears to tune in the station too?
