QUOTES

She's one of the finest people in the business, I think, that I've been able to work with and get to know. But contrary to popular opinion, she's got a ribald sense of humor. She's very funny herself. She enjoys a raucous laugh. She's a tremendously committed, hardworking professional, and she's got such grace and dignity about her — just her personhood. But I don't find her in any way treacly or saccharine. She's definitely a woman of manners, but not in any way that's offensively on the saccharine side. She just embodies a kind of grace and elegance and civility, and that's not how you would describe most people in show business.

Leslie Ann Warren

I just remember one thing and that is a young lady many years ago standing alone on a stage on Broadway singing in one single light in a shimmering moment of magic one of the most magical moments that has every been locked in my memory in the theatre singing 'I Could Have Danced All Night

Chris Plummer 2001 Ella Awards

"A wonderful memento of a very happy time."

Julie Andrews on her Oscar

----------------------------------------

The songs had a wonderful vaudeville quality about them which I immediately recognized, and I thought, yes…..maybe I can contribute something to this.

Julie Andrews on Mary Poppins

----------------------------------------

"Sometimes opportunities float right past your nose. Work hard, apply yourself, and be ready. When an opportunity comes you can grab it."

Julie Andrews

----------------------------------------

"What I suppose I'd like to be, one day, is someone who is fascinating. You know-a person you want to look at or see, no matter what she's doing. I think what I'm trying to say is that I'd like to be an original, to be myself and not a pale copy of anyone else. You know, the really marvelous actors and actresses we admire have qualities that can't be pinned down. I suppose I would like to be that type of performer if I were to leave a mark"

"I got up off the bed and my knees just buckled .... because it was delicious"

Julie Andrews on kissing James Garner

----------------------------------------

"I didn’t think I was in total sympathy with [Jerusha]. She left her home, turned away from the man she really loved to stay with a husband she didn’t love to suffer the hardships and deprivations of a missionary’s wife on an untamed island. I don’t think I would have done that"

Julie Andrews on Hawaii

----------------------------------------

"It was a good, gutsy role; this was an historical epic. Being a part of it was very stimulating."

Julie Andrews

"She's shy with strangers, but once she accepts you - watch out. She's sweet, modest, kind to animals, completely wacky. She's a brilliant practical joker, a writer of naughty Limericks, a superb mimic, a collector of shaggy-elephant stories, a devotee of the bongo drum and a lover of soda fountains."

Carol Burnett - 1963

----------------------------------------

"Julie is a lady, but a lady with a wonderfully humorous view of herself. 'Well, Mary Poppins blew it again,' she'll say if something goes wrong. No star ever radiated that love she does. Trouble is, audiences think they own her. They demand she be a certain thing and are disappointed when she's not."

Blake Edwards
