film meme » six actresses [6/6]: Julie Andrews
"Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th."
While she played the original Eliza Dolittle in the Broadway musical “My Fair Lady”, Audrey Hepburn played the part in the movie “My Fair Lady”. The studio executives did not want Andrews because she hadn’t had any experience in film and thought Hepburn would be the better choice. When winning the best actress Golden Globe in 1965 for Mary Poppins, she displayed her cheekiness when she drolly quipped “I’d like to thank Jack Warner for making this possible.” Had she been cast by Warner Bros. in My Fair Lady, she would not have been available for Mary Poppins.
most famous movies: Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, Victor/ Victoria, The Princess Diaries, Darling Lili, The Americanization of Emily
