Julie Andrews

Andrews picks up the story with her arrival in Hollywood and her phenomenal rise to fame in her earliest films—Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music. Andrews describes her years in the film industry—from the incredible highs to the challenging lows.

She also unveils her personal story of adjusting to a new and often daunting world, dealing with the demands of unimaginable success, being a new mother, the end of her first marriage, embracing two stepchildren, adopting two more children, and falling in love with the brilliant and mercurial Blake Edwards. The pair worked together in numerous films, including Victor/Victoria, the gender-bending comedy that garnered multiple Oscar nominations.
