Julie Andrews : an intimate biography by Richard Stirling( Recording )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In My Fair Lady, Julie Andrews had the biggest hit on Broadway. As the title role in Mary Poppins, she won an Academy Award. And The Sound of Music made her the most famous woman in the world and 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. Despite many setbacks - including the loss of her singing voice in 1997 - Julie Andrews is still a star, with recent leading roles in Shrek the Third and The Princess Diaries. Combining the author's interviews with the star and his wide-ranging research, this is a frank but affectionate portrait of an enduring icon of stage and screen."--Container
