For those of you who have not seen it, Victor Victoria is Blake Edwards' 1982 remake of a little known 1933 German film of the same name wherein a struggling light opera singer named Victoria (Julie Andrews) meets up with Toddy (Robert Preston) a struggling gay cabaret singer who comes up with a brilliant money making idea. Turn Victoria into Victor, the world's greatest female impersonator and "he" becomes the toast of Paris, provided no one finds out that "he's" a phoney. Matters are of course complicated when James Garner shows up, falls in love with Victoria and doesn't approve of her "woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman" lifestyle.
I love this movie! It's hilarious, the suits are gorgeous and the interiors are stylish. Plus, I love the character of Norma, pretending to be Jean Harlow in Dinner at Eight.
