Victor Victoria (1982)
Victoria Grant (Julie Andrews), a down-and-out British soprano, struggles to find work in the nightclubs of 1930s Paris. While trying to scam a free meal, Grant meets cabaret performer Toddy (Robert Preston), who comes up with an idea that will change everything. Acting as her manager, Toddy bills Grant as a male female impersonator. When the nightclubs eat it up, the duo makes it big – even a Chicago mobster (James Garner) is enamored with Grant. But keeping the truth a secret is no easy task.

First of all, let me just say that I am slightly obsessed with Julie Andrews and her work. With that out of the way… I love her in this movie because it’s not your typical Julie Andrews movie. Most people see her in The Sound of Music or Mary Poppins or (if you know this far back in her career) Cinderella. However, she delivers a flawless performance as Victor/Victoria. The only skepticism I have about this movie is seeing her as a man. She’s so feminine (in her mannerisms, voice, appearance, etc.) that it’s almost impossible to think that she’s a man. Robert Preston is wonderfully funny, and I always love James Garner. The movie probably could have done without Lesley Ann Warren’s song and dance number (why ruin Julie and Robert’s wonderful score?)… On a side note, Warren’s character reminded me a bit of Jean Hagen’s Lina Lamont in Singin’ in the Rain; they each had their characters down perfectly, and you got just annoyed with them enough to hate them but like them at the same time…

Of course, Andrews does a beautiful job with all the songs- my favorite being her first jazz number. All in all, an impossibly wonderful performance by all involved.
