DIRECTOR: BLAKE EDWARDS

CAST: JULIE ANDREWS, JAMES GARNER, ROBERT PRESTON

Andrews’s cabaret performer becomes a sensation in 1930s Paris after she concocts a double deceit: impersonating a male female impersonator. The most intricate expression of Edwards’s investigations into gender roles, the film is a supple and sexy piece of work, buoyed by a marvelous Mancini score and whip-smart dialogue. “A work of dry wit, high slapstick, black despair, romantic warmth, and penetrating intelligence.”—Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
