Happy birthday, Julie Andrews

Happy birthday to stage and screen star Julie Andrews, who turns 74 today!

My favorite parts of Andrews' memoir, Home, deal with her experiences on Broadway. I didn't think there were any clips of her performance as Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, but I found one!

The musical opened on March 15, 1956 at the Mark Hellinger Theatre and played for 2,717 performances. (Wouldn't it be loverly to have the Hellinger as a Broadway theatre again?)
