V74: Thoroughly Modern Millie

Today's post is brief because I'm slammed with stuff-that-isn't-sewing-stuff (argh).  It's the opening credits from one of my favorite films ever, "Thoroughly Modern Millie," starring Julie Andrews.  I won't explain it; I'll just let you watch.  Enjoy!

  1. I went through a phase in 5th grade where I must have watched that movie almost weekly! It's very likely that that is where my interest in the 20s grew from. I met Julie Andrews a few years ago at a book signing, such a nice lady.

    1. Re-watched the film last night...makes me want to make a 20's dress (even though I know it won't 'flatter me'). lol

    1. WandaB, you will love it! I think it's available on Netflix, or at worst you can watch it in parts on YouTube. It's 60s campy, but such fun.

  5. I used to LOVE that movie! I have a really clear recollection of watching it so eagerly as a kid. Thanks for making me remember it!

    1. I saw it the first time as a kid, too, and I held on to the image of Carrol Channing in the bi-plane, drinking champagne, and shouting "Raspberries!". I want to live my life like Muzzy!

  6. Classics! Love Julie Andrews and all the older moview with song and dance.
    If only they made more movies this way. Nine was a great reminder of how the old movies jumped from talking into a song and dance production.

    Thanks Lauren for taking us back :)

    1. They transitioned fluidly too, from dialogue to song. How about that "Tapioca" number, eh? :-) Gosh, love it so much!

  7. Now I want to go out and buy the DVD and Sound Track. All the songs where great. When I saw Kate it took me back to the evenings we watched Laugh In.
    It is amazing how much they look like twins. Here are two links to compair.
