What is your favorite Julie Andrews movie?

Two Julie Andrews movie that I really enjoy are Sound of Music and Mary Poppins, which she worked on around the same time. Those two are my favorites. Mary Poppins is fun and entertaining to watch. The ending always makes me so sad. I enjoy the story of Sound of Music. I think that's what I love most about that movie, as well as the chemistry between Julie Andrew and Christopher Plummer. What is your favorite Julie Andrew movie?

The sound of music is definitely at the top. I've watched it probably a hundred times and still enjoy it every time. Julie plays the character so well and makes us all fall in love with her. And the children, what a transformation they make, victims to the power of love. A Christopher is truly superb as the Captain. And the music is so delightful! And it has some comedic moments too!

I just found your discussion here!! Mary Poppins is an old time favorite - and certainly she is my 5 year old daughter's favorite character! Julie Andrews was perfect for the Mary Poppins character - and I think she is quite stunning as a brunette! The film was "practically perfect in every way" - hee hee. We just came back from Mary Poppins on Ice at our local rink . . . so Mary Poppins was a hit tonight!

My favourite is probably the sound of music as I think I think it really shows Julie Andrews off her best. This was also the first ever film of Julie Andrews that I saw, after that, the other films such as Mary Poppins, just didn't quite match up. The chemistry between Julie Andrews and Chris Plummer was lovely, but I also noticed the chemistry in Mary POppins too between Mary Poppins and her co-star (can't remember his name, sorry), I think people just loved working with Julie Andrews, and I also can't believe that the films were from all these years ago... :)

I love her in musicals too - The Sound of Music, Thoroughly Modern Milly, Mary Poppins. I think she is at her best in those kinds of roles. My daughters now know her from the Princess Diaries films and Tooth Fairy. I think she is a talented actress and singer and a real legend!

I would say my favourite is "Mary Poppins" because it also stars Dck Van Dyk (can you believe it won't let me spell his name properly for word violation!) and although his accent is terrible between the two of them they make it all round good fun. But I also like her in "10" which starred Dudley Moore and Bo Derek, although I would say that's more for Bo Derek than just Julie Andrews performance.

My favorite is The Sound of Music. I've seen it a number of times and still enjoy it. I love the songs, some of the settings and the plot. I also enjoy the chemistry between the two. I just really admire Julie Andrews; she's a professional.

I thought it was the Sound of Music as I remembered loving it as a child and my mom had the album and I knew all the songs. But I watched it recently as an adult and I never realized how actually sad and depressing it was, and what it was really about and the time frame. I realized it was not the happy go lucky movie I thought it was. I liked her in My Fair Lady.

One of my favorite movie of all time is Sound of Music too. My parents had not even met when this movie was shown! LOL. But I do appreciate the music, the simple plot and everything in the moviie. Also, Julie Andrews' presence added to its charm too. I don't like Mary Poppins that much. I think it was just another attempt to create a musical with Julie Andrews as a nanny again. So it's not a sell for me. Her other movie that I like though is Princess Diaries (the first one). Even if she was just a support in that movie, you could still feel her presence. The movie wouldn't be as good if she is not the queen in that movie.
