“This stylish, gender-bending, sexual/musical comedy stars Julie Andrews as a female (Victoria) who passes as a gay male female impersonator (Victor). Robert Preston offers a scintillating performance as her gay friend and mentor, Toddy. James Garner is a Chicago gangster confusingly enchanted and attracted to Andrews, who he thinks is a man. Based on the 1933 German comedy, Viktor und Viktoria, Edwards’ exuberant romp is full of snappy tunes and sophisticated hilarity. Lesley Ann Warren gives a priceless performance as Garner’s dumb-blonde mistress.” (TLA Video & DVD Guide, 2003)
