Winner ” BEST MUSIC, ORIGINAL SONG SCORE” at the Academy Awards, plus 12 international film fest awards including “BEST ACTRESS”, “BEST FOREGIN FILM” and “BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR”

“Victor/Victoria is a sparkling, ultra-sophisticated entertainment from Blake Edwards. Based on a 1933 German film comedy (Viktor und Viktoria, written and directed by Rheinhold Schunzel) which was a big hit in its day, pic sees Edwards working in the Lubitsch-Wilder vein of sly wit and delightful sexual innuendo..”
   Variety

“Andrews and Preston landed Oscar nominations in the film's unlikely haul of seven. But both the nominated Lesley Ann Warren and the overlooked Garner are infinitely more amusing in a double act that's part Clark Gable and Jean Harlow and part an inversion of Judy Holliday and Broderick Crawford's characters in Born Yesterday.”
   David Parkinson, Empire

“''Victor/Victoria'' combines the sweetness of ''Darling Lili'' with the unbridled hilarity of ''S.O.B.,'' but without that comedy's bitterness. It is an unqualified hit.”
   Vincent Canby, The New York Times

Reviews

  1. :

    This gloriously camp comedy from Pink Panther man Blake Edwards is utterly unmissable. From the wonderfully fake Paris settings to established stars playing against type this film really hits the spot. Whilst both Julie Andrews and James Garner are excellent in the lead roles. The stand out for me is wild west veteran bad guy Robert Preston, resplendent in a bad wig, as the very campest of crooners. There are so many choice scenes. The restaurant with irritable waiter Graeme Stark. The guest house with “Arthur” from On The Buses. Blake Edwards extracts great performances from his eclectic cast. The tunes and Julie Andrews singing are remarkable and this film should have had more success on release. Treat yourself to this on DVD.
