Publisher's Summary

In 'My Fair Lady', Julie Andrews had the biggest hit on Broadway. As the title role in 'Mary Poppins', she won an Academy Award. And 'The Sound of Music' made her the most famous woman in the world and rescued Twentieth Century Fox from bankruptcy. Three year later, 'Star!' almost put the studio back under, and the leading lady of both films fell as spectacularly as she had risen. Despite many setbacks - including the loss of her singing voice in 1997 - Julie Andrews is still a star, with recent leading roles in 'Shrek the Third' and 'The Princess Diaries'. Combining the author's interviews with the star and his wide-ranging research, this is a frank but affectionate portrait of an enduring icon of stage and screen.

Didn't care for narrator. Some of the stories seemed a bit embellished. Enjoyed her autobiography more.

A great biography about a well-loved star

Anyone who has loved Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins or Maria Von Trapp can enjoy this comprehensive biography. It was enlightening to learn about all of her other contributions to stage, film, literature, and society in general.
