film meme » six actresses [6/6]: Julie Andrews

"Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th."

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”. The studio executives did not want Andrews because she hadn’t had any experience in film and thought Hepburn would be the better choice. When winning the best actress Golden Globe in 1965 for Mary Poppins, she displayed her cheekiness when she drolly quipped “I’d like to thank Jack Warner for making this possible.” Had she been cast by Warner Bros. in My Fair Lady, she would not have been available for Mary Poppins.

most famous movies: Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, Victor/ Victoria, The Princess Diaries, Darling Lili, The Americanization of Emily

Happy Birthday Julie Andrews, fairest lady of them all - (1 October 1935)

Anonymous asked: Wow, who is that anon to say what you should or shouldn't post on your OWN blog? As a fan of Bollywood and Hollywood, I say keep up the good work!

I guess that´s what he meant to say. I knew this had to come sooner or later but I don´t see why I shouldn´t post what I want on my own blog. But I don´t intend to change my blog in any way. Thank you! And thanks for backing me up. :)

zizzerzazzerzuzz asked: Uh, anyone who thinks SRK is unattractive isn't worth anyone's time. I love your blog by the way, the classic Hollywood stuff AND the Bollywood stuff. You're great.

Anonymous asked: so much bollywood i thought this was a old hollywood blog? that guy you reblog a lot is unattractive i'm sorry

If you read my description you would read that it says “classic films & Bollywood”, so you´ve been warned. Besides that, I tag pretty much every Bollywood-related post, so it should be very easy for you to blacklist and avoid it if it bothers you so much. And if you really are so annoyed by it that not even blacklisting it helps and you feel compelled to send me a message, then why don´t just unfollow me? You are free to do so any time. It´s my blog and I post what I feel like posting. I tag every post as accurately as possible, to enable people to find things easier and/or blacklist other things.

That “guy” I reblog, is named “Shah Rukh Khan” and I happen to love him (also feel free to blacklist him). And I don´t remember to have asked for your opinion on his looks.

Happy Birthday, Deborah Kerr (September 30, 1921 - October 16, 2007)

I learned when I was a girl that the golden rule in life is not to fight about things that aren’t important. Save up your strength and fighting spirit for the time that something comes along that is important to you. Then fight … and fight hard.

"I found Livie de Havilland to be one of the most gracious , kind, and charming people I had met in America - not to mention one great actress - and I liked her instantly. (My opinion of her has never changed. She´s a wonderful lady.) I liked her so much that it made me look more on Will Price. I thought that anyone who had a friend like Livie just had to be a great person, too."
