Julie Andrews has been a star for a half century. She has triumphed on stage, in the movies, and on television. A theatrical legend as Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, she soon became the most beloved actress in the world, winning an Oscar for Mary Poppins. But, at the peak of her enormous success, Andrews was unhappy enough to submit to daily psychotherapy. After two flop movie musicals, Star! and Darling Lili, the press and public seemed to turn on her. Box-office poison in Hollywood, she starred in an Emmy-winning television variety series, wrote two children’s books, performed live, and concentrated on her growing family.

When she did reemerge in movies in the 1980s, it was in sensationally different roles. Julie played a “man” in the movie Victor/Victoria and mocked her own goody-two-shoes image by literally baring her breast in S.O.B. In the 1990s she returned to Broadway, starring in Victor/Victoria.

Here is the story of Julie Andrews — her meteoric rise, devastating fall, and incredible comeback, from the little English girl with a crystalline voice to the legend who has outlasted her critics.
