Storyline

In 1922 New York City, Millie Dillmount and Miss Dorothy Brown are just two of the girls living at the Priscilla Hotel for Single Young Ladies run by Mrs. Meers. Orphaned, Miss Dorothy, just recently arrived, is a naive, old-fashioned girl from a seemingly privileged background who has aspirations to be a stage actress. From more modest means, Millie, in New York for three months, used to be old fashioned, but now has a new modern sensibility and look to match, complete with bobbed hair and dresses with hemlines above the knee. Included in this new modern sensibility is Millie's goal of getting a job as a stenographer, with a quick promotion to being her wealthy boss' "Mrs.". Love is not to factor into the equation. She believes she's found the right employer in the form of chisel-jawed Trevor Graydon of the Sincere Trust Insurance Company. Millie's pursuit of Mr. Graydon is despite the fact that Mr. Graydon sees her as one of the boys, he has old fashioned sensibilities, and Millie ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

According to Mary Tyler Moore's autobiography "After All", Lew Wasserman had brought her to Universal after her unexpected success as a comic actress on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) with the hopes of making her "the next Doris Day" in light movie comedies. This was originally intended to be a film of that type until Julie Andrews came onboard, and only then did it become a musical that focused more on her. Also, Moore originally had a solo song that was cut from the final release. See more »

Goofs

Jimmy Smith's boss' "red roadster" is a 1925 Pierce-Arrow Model 80. The Model 80 was manufactured by Pierce-Arrow for the 1925 through 1928 model years, when it was superseded by the Model 81. No Model 80 Pierce-Arrows had been manufactured in or before 1922, when this movie was set. Unlike most brands of automobiles at the time, the headlamps of Pierce-Arrows were installed in fender-mounted moldings. See more »

User Reviews

An enjoyable family film that balances slapstick with surrealism
22 March 2004 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

If you got to see this film when you were six like I did, you pleasantly discover that viewing it at 33 is still a lot of fun. In many ways it's better- contrary to most films you remember enjoying as a kid. Even though my nostalgic memories of this movie included some mildly scary imagery, when I view it now it still has impact but from a more humorous standpoint. I must also add on a more base level that Julie Andrews level of attractiveness is on par with her considerable talent. An interesting observation particularly since I remember being more attracted to Mary Tyler Moore when I was a kid and barely noticed Julie. The director's intention no doubt. Digressions aside, this movie is an ideal choice for a family movie night. Although it has aspects that are not as culturally sensitive as some may like, these details are not intended to be malicious but are included as contrast devices. Particularly for 1967. Do yourself a favor and rent or purchase the DVD. A widescreen treat that will get your feet tapping. The child and the middle aged man in me must both give this film a 9 out of 10.
