Musical Monday: Thoroughly Modern Millie
I suppose it's technically Monday (by my time zone at least). Thoroughly Modern Millie is about a lady (Julie Andrews) in the 1920s who wants to be "fully modern" so she has big plans of working AND marrying her rich boss! Of course that doesn't go exactly as planned. There is also a second story line about girls being kidnapped and sold into white slavery. I actually only saw this movie recently, even though a good friend recommended it to me a long time ago. I love Julie Andrews and flappers, so I really don't know what took me so long. I couldn't find a good video of it, but my favorite scenes are when they are using a broken elevator. It only starts working when people start tap dancing. I always have an urge to tap dance whenever I'm in any elevator now. Here are two musical clips from the movie, and a totally random clip of Angela Lansbury singing the theme song.
