JULIE ANDREWS IN THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE. New York City, 1922. Feisty young flapper Millie Dillmount (Academy Award winner Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music) is a woman with much on her mind and a great deal of ambition to burn. Keen to marry into money, Millie has her sights set on wealthy company man Trevor Graydon (John Gavin, Spartacus) despite having feelings for penniless paper-clip salesman Jimmy (James Fox, Remains of the Day). Meanwhile aspiring actress and roommate Dorothy Brown (Academy Award® nominee Mary Tyler Moore, Ordinary People) is also looking for love, but in all the wrong places. Living at the Priscilla Hotel for Single Young Ladies run by the strict and calculating Mrs. Meers (Beatrice Lillie) both ladies must overcome their respective entanglements in order to make their dreams come true. Also featuring Carol Channing, directed by Academy Award winner George Roy Hill (The Sting) with a toe-tapping soundtrack by Elmer Bernstein and André Previn, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a colourful song and dance spectacular in the classic movie musical tradition.
