"Victor / Victoria" (1982)

I never went to see this when it hit theaters in the Spring of 1982, and only saw part of it when it aired endlessly on HBO throughout the 1980s. I finally recorded this on TCM a few weeks ago and watched it last night - and it was pretty good. It was very well-cast (never knew James Garner could be such a sexy leading man) and well-acted. I don't think it hit the comedy as well as it could have (it was more chuckles than hearty-laughs) . It's been billed as one of the last MGM 'musicals' yet it really isn't a musical (in which at least two characters sing to each other), so it's more like a 'film with music' (such as Streisand's 'A Star Is Born' and 'Yentl'). The movie was first conceived my husband and wife team Blake Edwards and Julie Andrews in 1978, yet took four years to bring to the screen (one reason was Peter Sellers, originally cast as 'Toddy' passed away).

It was nominated for many Oscars, and won one (I think 'best original music'). What do DLrs think ? Has it aged well over 40 years ? Did anyone see the Broadway musical which got mixed reviews in 1995 ?

This is a bit weird and (now, an obvious) predictor of my homosexuality, but the film was a childhood favorite. My parents had it on VHS and I watched it several times as a kid. I haven't watched it in at least a decade, so I can't comment on how it's aged... I imagine, some of it has aged well and some has not. Even as a kid, I thought it was ridiculous that anyone could mistake Julie for a female impersonator, but I was still charmed. You didn't specifically mention Lesley Ann Warren, OP. She was a total riot in the film. As was, coincidentally, Rachel York in the so-so Broadway adaptation. I was too young to have seen that live, but there is a pro-shot recording available. The aforementioned York provides great comic relief, the sets look like a million bucks, but it's not a well structured musical and Julie give is the ol college try, though her more serious moments feel a bit silly.

Yes, Lesley Ann Downe stole the show (sorry I forgot to mention her role). She deserved an Oscar. I never quite believed Julie Andrews as a man, either - just like i never believed Streisand as a man (especially one 15 years younger than she really was).

It was surprisingly gay for 1982! It was a fun movie, but I agree, I don't think Julie Andrews was too convincing as a man. (Spoiler) When she "reveals herself as a man" at her show, and the audience is shocked and delighted, I think the audience would really think "Uh, what's the point? That she's rather butch?"

Poor Streisand didn't have a chance at the Oscars with 'Yentl' a year later. The genre was pretty much played out with 'V/V' and 'Tootsie' by then.

I don't know why but this movie scared me whenever I saw a commercial for it. I'm 49 so I guess I was around 8 or 9 when it was released. I avoided it on HBO (I think it was on frequently). It seemed extremely adult and I might have an aversion to Julie Andrews.

Warren was supposed to do a topless scene but they put her in lingerie instead. I think it's when King sends her back to Chicago and she opens her coat on the train and says 'you ain't seen the last of me.'

I was going to post the very same thing. Even as a young gayling when I first saw V/V, I was troubled by his hairstyle. In fact, all the men's hairstyles looked a little off to me. Too contemporary. Dapper men out on the town in the 1930s wore their hair slicked back and heavily pomaded.

Selleck was not nearly good enough an actor to play the role, R16, plus he'd be way too young for Andrews. I believe Edwards. This was the second pairing of Garner and Andrews, the first being the far superior Americanization of Emily (1964), directed by Arthur Hiller.

I remember some controversy when the Broadway musical first premiered (never mind all the controversy after it premiered - but that's another thread).

The one I'm thinking of was that Edwards and Andrews promised audiences this would premiere in the 94-95 season. However, once they saw Glenn Close's performance of 'Norma Desmond' in LA, and knew she was opening on Broadway in November, 1994, they decided to delay their musical for the following season. They didn't want their musical competing with 'Sunset' at the box office or the Tonys - and Andrews didn't want to go up against Close for 'Best Actress'. This move upset many involved in the production (especially investors) but Edwards convinced everyone this needed to be done.

They really didn't have to worry - 'V/V' was shut out of the nominations except for Andrews (Best Actress in a Musical') and she ended up withdrawing from the Tonys.

I saw V/V when it came out (no pun intended) and have seen it many times since. It holds up very well -more than many of its contemporaries (Google movies of 1982 and you'll see what I mean). The performers are uniformly outstanding -probably the best acting work Andrews has ever turned in. Preston played gay so well in this film (and in SOB) that I actually thought he was gay. The film was delightful -fun, tuneful, and good-spirited. But...

What hurts the film for me is when Garner hides in the bathroom to spy on "Victor" and learns "his" secret -before the big kiss and the famous "I don't care if you are a man" line. It totally undercuts the character actually caring for the person. He KNOWS it's a woman pretending to be a man, so he takes no risk of losing his straight credentials. I suppose it was considered necessary in 1982, but it's the one false note (for me) in the story. And I don't like how he never fesses up to Victoria, letting her think he was far more enlightened than he really was. Still, this was incredibly gay-positive for a film of its era, and the joys far outweigh my one quibble.

I also saw the Broadway version. The less said about that, the better. It was charmless, and it killed Andrews' voice (not the surgery she later blamed for it). The world would be a better place if Julie had skipped the stage show and kept her voice.

In the CNN clip above, they keep mentioning what a success "V/V" was on Broadway, when in fact the musical (which cost nearly $9M to bring to Broadway) only recouped half of its investment. From what was reported, the musical lost money when Liza stepped in to replace a vacationing Andrews in January, 1997 (and her costar Tony Roberts did not report for work at most performances, as he didn't get along with Liza) and the box office dropped even when Andrews returned in February. There was a bump in May, 1997 after Andrews' nomination. However, once Raquel replaced Andrews in June the box office dropped and the show closed in the red about six weeks later.

I adore Robert Preston.Loved him in Music Man. Used to get him mixed up with Richard Basehart at first.

Robert Preston has big chompers. But a good actor.

“Tschaasch Hot” with Lisha is truly tragic, R122.

I have always loved “You and Me”. The chemistry between Preston and Andrews is palpable. And the wonderful waiter is in there too.

I saw Raquel Welch during her very brief run. Trainwreck.

I’m certain I haven't made this up, but there’s a proshot of the Broadway version, filmed for Japanese television - it used to available as a DVD.

It begins with an introduction by Julie, where she says it was filmed ‘for all my friends in Japan’. Only somebody with her effortless charm could get away with such forced sincerity.

I downloaded it. It's a musical that I'll have to watch in bits and pieces.
