Did You Know?

Doris Day did not want to do this film. The character of Lyle Benton was painfully reminiscent of her first two husbands, Al Jorden and George Weidler.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Bathroom scene at flight attendant apartment, Doris Day is wearing her personal robe. Monogram with DDM can be seen on the back.See more »

an uneven but engaging thriller, 16 January 2003
Author: sarasdano from Costa Mesa, CA

"Julie" starts out as a mass of tension, (other than the ridiculous rear-projection car scenes where everyone turns the steering wheel in wrong directions!) packing an intense amount of story in the first 40 minutes. By the second act, when the pace slows down, all the previous scenes seem too condensed for comfort. One scene in the beginning of the film is especially intriguing: Lyle practices his piano piece while Julie lays on the couch. Watching his hands dance over the keys, and the beautifully framed shot of him against the open window is truly surreal, almost too profound for a film of this type.

The third act, all about Doris Day landing the airplane, feels like an entirely separate movie. With the loss of the human threat after her, it stops being a thriller and becomes the tag ending of an action blockbuster. "Julie" has uneven bursts of calm and nail-biting tension, all in all a strange combination with its own memorable moments.
