If you've always dreamed of a musical featuring Julie Andrews burning down a factory, Mary Tyler Moore battling white slavers, and Carol Channing getting shot out of a cannon, your wish has finally been granted with this madcap 1967 classic from director George Roy Hill (THE STING, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID).
A splashy, slapstick-filled tribute to the Roaring '20s, the story follows starry-eyed stenographer Millie (Andrews), who arrives in 1922 New York looking for excitement and love. She finds plenty of both, as she reinvents herself with flapper fashions, sets out to win the heart of her boss (John Gavin), befriends a naive newcomer (Moore), and uncovers the sinister schemes of her landlady (Beatrice Lillie).
This film truly is the bee's knees *and* the cat's pyjamas!
