Thoroughly Modern Millie

Home > Broadway Musicals DVD > Great Musical Productions

Julie Andrews (Actor), Mary Tyler Moore (Actor), George Roy Hill (Director) - Thoroughly Modern Millie - Broadway Musicals DVD - Julie Andrews is at her peak of adorability in this enjoyable (and surprisingly sarcastic) spoof of the 1920s. It has every trick: occasional silent-movie intertitles, flapper lingo (Oh, banana oil), and a laughable plot about women being sold into white slavery by the scheming manageress (splendid Beatrice Lillie) of a Hotel for Ladies, aided by a cabal of wicked Chinese. (The stereotypes are bearable only if you remember this is a spoof of silent movie melodrama.) Even with able support from Mary Tyler Moore and James Fox, this is Julie's show; she plays to the camera with the collusion of director George Roy Hill, who's clearly smitten with her silly streak. The movie has an annoying tendency to spend time on musical numbers--a Jewish wedding, a vaudeville act--that don't serve the plot. A future Broadway musical would create a new score, except for the delightfully catchy title tune. Julie Andrews, James Fox, Mary Tyler Moore, Carol Channing. A rowdy, bawdy comedy set in the Roaring Twenties about an innocent country girl who comes to the big city in search of a husband. Nominated for seven Oscars, winning for Best Original Score. 1967-color-138 min-G-widescreen. Even aside from her once-perfect voice, Julie Andrews has an amazing dry comic gift that is maybe akin to genius, and it never got a better showcase than in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE. If you don't get it, you don't get it, but there are indeed many, many people who cannot even think of her facial expressions when she turns to the camera in this Twenties spoof just before her thoughts are flashed onscreen in intertitles without becoming helpless with laughter, and I confess to be one of them. This is the fullest chance she ever got to strut her comic stuff (especially when she decides to become positively FATAL.). Thoroughly Modern Millie won an Oscar for music and Channing was nominated for supporting role (she won a Golden Globe for her efforts, were clearly tailored to her style). But Lillie is a delight as well and I personally enjoy Gavin's mock-heroic performance. Moore just has to look sweet, although she does get to say a bad word (.), and Fox is charming although clearly too young for Andrews The surprise of the film, to me at any rate, is James Fox as Jimmy. Not only does he show an exemplary flare for comedy but also his singing and dancing are not that bad. Everyone connected with the film seems to be having a whale of a time and it certainly comes over to the viewer.
