“We bonded instantly on the film, and laughed our way through the production. Ever since that time, we never referred to each other again as Julie and Mary. Whenever we bumped into each other, people must have thought us nuts…screaming across some shopping aisle in a supermarket or yelling to each other down the corridors of CBS…’Millie! Miss Dorothy!’ She was a joy to work with, her talent was monumental. She was brave, kind, generous and an activist for many causes. I will miss my ‘Miss Dorothy’ so much, but I’m comforted to know that the joy she brought us all will be everpresent in her many films and television shows.” - Statement from Julie Andrews on the death of Mary Tyler Moore

Another red-letter day in Julie-history. Thoroughly Modern Millie premiered fifty years ago on 21 March 1967 at the Criterion Theatre in New York City.

Stars Carol Channing, Mary Tyler Moore, Beatrice Lillie and James Fox joined a glittering first-night audience including Ethel Merman, Myrna Loy, Ed Sullivan, Lee Remick, Richard Chamberlain, David Merrick and others. Julie was unable to attend due to filming commitments for Star! but she was on hand for the film’s even more lavish West Coast Premiere two weeks later on April 13 at the Warner Theatre, Hollywood.

So beat the drums cause our Millie is a thoroughly Golden Girl now!
