Certainly it is one of the more interesting performances by Julie Andrews (and she feels right at home!), “Victor/Victoria” is about a female impersonator (Andrews), who actually is a woman portraying a man portraying a woman (got that?). And there's not a
dull moment in the movie. Teamed up with James Garner (playing a Chicago gangster who's besotted by Andrews, whom he believes at first really is a man!) and Robert Preston, Andrews swings and sways her way through a rollicking satire of the times and issues in Paris during the Thirties. Full of lively--and very good--show tunes and dances, “Victor/Victoria” is a crowning achievement of Blake Edwards (Andrews' real life husband). Music is by Henry Mancini, with two ace jobs of supporting rs by Lesley Ann Warren and Alex Karras!
