Overview

Julie Andrews: An Intimate Biography by Richard Stirling

The extraordinary career of Dame Julie Andrews spans more than forty years. Her first film, Mary Poppins, was Disney's most successful film, and in 1965 The Sound of Music rescued Twentieth Century Fox from bankruptcy. Three years later, Star! almost put the studio back under, and the leading lady of both films fell as spectacularly as she had risen. But Julie Andrews is nothing if not a survivor; and despite many setbacks—including the tragic loss of her singing voice in 1997 after a botched operation—she's still a performer, recently starring in Shrek and The Princess Diaries. Richard Stirling's deeply researched biography—based on many years of contact with Julie—is a frank but affectionate portrait of an enduring icon of stage and screen.

Ever since I watched Mary Poppins at age five, Julie Andrews has been my favorite actress. I am 14, and have seen her in so many more films. Watching her in movies has inspired me to become an actress, and do what she has done. I have seen The Sound of Music 5 times, and it is my favorite movie. My dream in life is to one day be standing on a stage in Broadway, singing a solo, when I am still young. I also want to be in films. Julie Andrews has inspired me to do many things, which I couldn't do without being inspired by her. I would love it if I could meet her someday. She is 78 years old, and lives in California. I think that her daughter, Emma, is so lucky to have had Julie as her mother. She is such a wonderful person.
