Thoroughly fun!

by Flirty on 3/25/2003

This is one of my all-time favorite movies! It has the incomparable Julie Andrews as the hard-living, hard-playing Dillmount... a man-hunter extraordinaire (at least in her own mind *chuckle*)as well as a fresh-faced Mary Tyler Moore, who's overplayed ingenue never fails to give me a fit of the giggles. To help these two lovelies in their quest for... what they're looking for (I won't give it away) the ensemble cast shines! Carol Channing alone is enough to make me rewind it again and again, along with the wonderful Jack Soo, Noriyuki "Pat" Morita, and Beatrice Lillie as Mrs. Meers...the evil house dame *chuckle*. This movie may not be for everyone... it's a gentle romp set in a bygone era.. but its simple message still holds true today. I highly encourage anyone to give it a try. You may find yourself a new favorite to pop in on a Saturday night. ;) The story line is interesting.. at least the SURFACE storyline, there's many plots afoot in this caper. It's everything a movie should be: a comedy, a mystery, a romance, a bit of action, a musical, and most of all.. totally fun! Read More

Editors Note
Note This characteristically spectacular Ross Hunter musical production, a parody of the films of the 1920s, stars Julie Andrews as the eager young Millie Dillmount. She arrives in New York City in the 1920s intent on a job as a secretary with a rich, handsome, eligible boss. Deciding to adopt the appearance of a flapper, she has her hair bobbed. At a women's hotel run by Mrs. Meers (Beatrice Lillie), who also runs a white slavery ring, she meets the beautiful, naive Miss Dorothy (Mary Tyler Moore). Millie does get a job with a handsome boss, Trevor Graydon (John Gavin), but he has eyes only for Miss Dorothy, and Millie is forced to make do with Jimmy Smith (James Fox), a paper-clip salesman. After they've returned to the hotel from attending a party at the Long Island estate of wealthy Muzzy van Hossmere (Carol Channing), Millie finds that Miss Dorothy has disappeared. When she and Jimmy detect the scent of opium in Mrs. Meers's room, they realize she has a sideline. The valiant Jimmy must go in drag to uncover the whereabouts of the white slavers' hideout. The cast and crew perform admirably in this light farce that is almost too sweet for its own good.
Plot Summary
