Here’s another example of “the clothes make the man” – even when the man’s a nice unemployed lady who can’t find a job as a singer.  Julie Andrews plays Victoria Grant in Victor/Victoria.  She’s so po’ she can’t get a meal without sneaking a cockroach onto her plate in a restaurant in an attempt to blackmail the restaurant into giving her a free dinner.  Her pal Robert Preston comes up with a gimmick to get her a singing job: if she pretends to be a male, then puts together an act as a fake female impersonator, the idea is so outrageous that nobody would suspect it’s a hoax.

It works, sort of.  It’s another movie where people expect that whatever someone dresses as, and presents themselves to be, is “the truth, even though it sure as heck isn’t.  James Garner, who is instantly attracted to Victoria, while she’s playing at being “Victor” in the number “Le Jazz Hot,” doesn’t buy it, though, and neither does his hilariously jealous girlfriend, played by Lesley Ann Warren.  This is a fantastic, well-done, and very funny movie, and boasts a really spectacular ensemble cast.

As for Julie’s outfit in “Le Jazz Hot”…I want that gorgeous hat!

Below is the link to the video.  Enjoy!
