Not only is Thoroughly Modern Millie a zany romantic spoof of the roaring twenties, it is a musical that won an Oscar for the best orginal music score! Julie Andrews stars as Millie, an innocent country girl who comes to the big city in search of a husband. Along the way she becomes the secretary of the rich and famous Trevor Graydon (John Gavin), befriends the sweet Miss Dorethy (Mary Tyler Moore), fights off white slaver Mrs. Meers (Beatrice Lillie) and hooks up with a lively paper clip salesman, Jimmy (James Fox). In the end it takes a rich and nutty jazz baby like Muzzy (Carol Channing) to unravel all these complications, give a great party, and match up lovers.
Shirley MacLaine gives one of her greatest performances in this spectacular musical based on Neil Simon's smash Broadway hit. Director Bob Fosse broke new cinematic ground with this freewheeling, visually stunning story of a lovelorn New York dance hall hostess, Charity Hope Valentine, who dreams of old-fashioned romance but gives her heart to one undeserving man after another. MacLaine joins all-star cast members Chita Rivera, Sammy Davis Jr., Ricardo Montalban, and Stubby Kaye in belting out thirteen vibrant Cy Coleman - Dorothy Field's numbers including 'Big Spender', 'Rhythm of Life', 'There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This' and the show-stopping 'If My Friends Could See Me Now'. It's an unforgettable production of an all-time classic.
