A lavish, oversized musical set in the Roaring Twenties that featured Julie and Mary Tyler Moore (show above dancing in an elevator) as well as Carol Channing, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE (1967) was not a commercial success (earning back only $8.5 million of its $20 million cost), but it did capture Julie in the flapper costumes that had brought her Broadway stardom (in The Boyfriend) and it received seven Oscar nominations, winning one for Elmer Bernstein's musical score.

Another commercial disappointment but still a fun movie, DARLING LILI (1970) is a farcical romantic comedy starring Julie as a World War I German spy and Rock Hudson (right) as the flight squadron commander she's spying on. The film marked Andrews' first with director Blake Edwards whom she later married.

DARLING LILI wasn't overly-well received (perhaps because it was a break from Julie's wholesome image) but its music did receive Oscar nominations, including one for Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer's song "Whistling Away the Dark."

Julie's film career came roaring back in 1982 with her Oscar-nominated performance as a woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman in VICTOR/VICTORIA. Written, produced and directed by Blake Edwards with Academy Award winning music by Mancini and Leslie Bricusse, the film received a total of seven nominations.
