Julie Andrews Quotes:

Mary Poppins: We can't have them gallivanting up there like kangaroos, can we?


Millie Dillmount: I'm going to be a stenog. Tomorrow I start interviewing bosses.

Captain von Trapp: Uh-huh. Then I suggest that you keep it, and let us eat.
Maria: Knowing how nervous I must have been, a stranger in a new household, knowing how important it was for me to feel accepted. It was so kind and thoughtful of you to make my first moments here so warm and happy and... pleasant.

Julie Andrews Facts
Mother-in-law of Steve Hamilton.

She was a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors in 2001.

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 (1964). The studio executives did not want Andrews because she hadn't had any experience in film and thought Hepburn would be the better choice. However, while the film My Fair Lady took home several Oscars in 1964, it failed to win the Best Actress category. That award went to none other than Julie Andrews for her performance in Mary Poppins (1964).
