No one ever made dresses constructed from drapes look so good. Thanks, Julie.

Julie Andrews as Maria in the Sound of Music were an essential part of my childhood. I loved every part of that film, tree-climbing, dancing in the greenhouse and the Von Trapp's daring escape. I'm happy to hear she continues to do good work in her real life.

The video of Julie signing Lonely Goater with the Muppets is an all-time classic.

Her Mary Poppins was much too nice. But her Eliza Doolittle (the Broadway smash) was perfection! Too bad the Hollywood bigwigs, in their wisdom, thought to cast Audrey Hepburn (whose voice ended up being dubbed by the stalwart Marni Nixon)instead. Well, Julie showed them--her film work was always great! And listen to her studio recording of The King and I sometime.

I love Julie Andrews. Sound of Music is still one of my "favorite things". It is such a shame her voice is not what is used to be after her surgery. She is still so talented. I like the books she writes with her daughter.
