Mary Poppins. English film and stage actress, singer, and author
Julie Andrews (1935) was a former child actress and singer who
rose to prominence starring in such stage musicals as My Fair Lady and Camelot.
She is best known for her roles in the films Mary Poppins (1964) and The Sound
of Music (1965). Her voice spanned four octaves until it was damaged by a throat
operation in 1997. In the 2000’s she had a major revival of her film career in
family films such as The Princess Diaries (2001) and the Shrek animated films
(2004–2010). Julie Andrews was born Julia Elizabeth Wells in Walton-on-Thames,
England, in 1935. Her mother, music hall performer Barbara Wells (nee Morris),
was married to Edward C. ‘Ted’ Wells, a teacher of metal and woodworking, but
Andrews was conceived as a result of an affair her mother had with a family
friend. With the outbreak of World War II, Barbara and Ted Wells went their
separate ways. Ted Wells assisted with evacuating children to Surrey during the
Blitz, while Barbara joined Ted Andrews in entertaining the troops through the
good offices of the Entertainments National Service Association (ENSA). Barbara
and Ted Wells were soon divorced. Barbara remarried to Ted Andrews in 1939.
Julie had lessons at the Cone-Ripman School, an independent arts educational
school in London, then with the famous concert soprano and voice instructor
Lilian Stiles-Allen. She continued her academic education at the Woodbrook
School, a local state school in Beckenham. Julie performed spontaneously and
unbilled on stage with her parents for about two years beginning in 1945. She
got her big break when her stepfather introduced her to Val Parnell, whose Moss
Empires controlled prominent venues in London. Andrews made her professional
solo debut at the London Hippodrome singing the difficult aria Je Suis Titania
from Mignon as part of a musical revue called Starlight Roof in 1947. She played
the Hippodrome for one year. In 1948 she became the youngest solo performer ever
to be seen in a Royal Command Variety Performance. Julie followed her parents
into radio and television and reportedly made her television debut on the BBC
program RadiOlympia Showtime in 1949. She garnered considerable fame throughout
the United Kingdom for her work on the BBC radio comedy show Educating Archie
(1950- 1952). In 1954 on the eve of her 19th birthday, Julie Andrews made her
Broadway debut portraying Polly Browne in the already highly successful London
musical The Boy Friend. To the critics, Andrews was the stand-out performer in
the show. In November 1955 Andrews was signed to appear with Bing Crosby in what
is regarded as the first made-for-television movie, High Tor. In 1956 Julie
Andrews appeared in the Frederick Loewe and Alan Jay Lerner musical My Fair Lady
as Eliza Doolittle to Rex Harrison's Henry Higgins. Richard Rodgers was so
impressed with her talent that concurrent with her run in My Fair Lady she was
featured in the Rodgers and Hammerstein television musical, Cinderella (1957,
Ralph Nelson). Cinderella was broadcast live and attracted an estimated 107
million viewers. She married set designer Tony Walton in 1959 in Weybridge,
Surrey. They had first met in 1948 when Andrews was appearing at the London
Casino in the show Humpty Dumpty. The couple filed for a divorce in 1967. In
1960 Lerner and Loewe again cast her in a period musical as Queen Guinevere in
Camelot, with Richard Burton. However movie studio head Jack Warner decided
Andrews lacked sufficient name recognition for her casting in the film version
of My Fair Lady; Eliza was played by the established film actress Audrey Hepburn
instead. As Warner later recalled, the decision was easy, "In my business I have
to know who brings people and their money to a movie theatre box office. Audrey
Hepburn had never made a financial flop." Andrews played the title role in
Disney's Mary Poppins (1964, Robert Stevenson), a lavish musical fantasy that
combined live-action and animation. Walt Disney had seen a performance of
Camelot and thought Andrews would be perfect for the role of the British nanny
who is "practically perfect in every way!" Andrews initially declined because of
pregnancy, but Disney politely insisted. Andrews and her husband headed back to
the United Kingdom in 1962 for the birth of daughter Emma Katherine Walton. As a
result of her performance in Mary Poppins, Andrews won the 1964 Academy Award
for Best Actress and the 1965 Golden Globe Award. She and her Mary Poppins
co-stars also won the 1965 Grammy Award for Best Album for Children. As a
measure of ‘sweet revenge’, as Poppins songwriter Richard M. Sherman put it,
Andrews closed her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes by saying, "And,
finally, my thanks to a man who made a wonderful movie and who made all this

for Viktor und Viktoria/Victor, Victoria (1959, Karl Anton). Energetic
and zany Annie Cordy (1928) starred in more than 30 French film
operettas, comedies and dramas. The Belgian actress and singer made over 300
records, and did 4000 live appearances world-wide, including several memorable
concerts at Paris’ most famous venue, L’Olympia. Annie Cordy was born as Leonie
Cooreman in Laeken (according to IMDb: Schaerbeek, Brussels), Belgium in 1928.
Her parents were Jan Cornelius Cooreman and Maria de Leeuw. She had a brother,
Louis, and a sister, Jeanne. At 8, her mother enrolled her in a dance class. She
studied piano and music theory. While studying she performed at charity galas.
Between her dance numbers, she sang popular hits. At 16, she won the talent
contest Grand Prix de la Chanson in 1944. She made her official stage debut in
Brussels at the B?uf sur le toit and performed throughout Belgium. In 1950,the
artistic director of the Paris’ biggest cabaret, Lido, invited her to come to
Paris. In 1951, she met Francois-Henri ‘Bruno’ Bruneau, who became her manager
and in 1958 her husband too. In 1951 and 1952, Cordy starred in big revues at
the Lido, but also at the ABC and the Moulin Rouge cabarets. In 1952, she
accompanied the Tour de France cycle race, an event which had huge mass appeal
and which, at the time, attracted as many show business personalities as
sportsmen. As RFI notes: “The event brought popular acclaim for the young singer
who received the Maurice Chevalier award at Deauville. She was already admired
for her versatile talents as singer, revue artist and above all zany
comedienne.” In 1952, Annie Cordy made her stage debut in the operetta La Route
fleurie (The Flowered Road) by Francis Lopez and Raymond Vinci, with Georges
Guetary and Bourvil. The show was an enormous hit and ran at the AC Theatre in
Paris for three years. In 1954 she performed for the first time at Paris most
famous venue, L’ Olympia. Many memorable concerts would follow. A year later she
also received the Grand Prix de l' Academie Charles-Cros for the song Oh,
Bessie!, a melancholy tribute to jazz singer Bessie Smith. Cordy started to
record songs for Pathe-Marconi and her version of La Ballade de Davy Crockett
was number 1 in the charts for five weeks in France in August 1956. Other hits
were La petite Marie (Little Mary), Les trois bandits de Napoli (The three
bandits of Naples) and Leon (Leo). In 1957, she sang at the wedding of Grace
Kelly and Prince Rainier III of Monaco. It lead to an American contract and she
went on a world tour and performed at the Plaza in New York, La Copacabana in
Rio de Janeiro, in Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico etc. Back in France, she played
with Jean Richard in the operetta Tete de linotte, which ran until 1960. In the
cinema Annie Cordy made her first appearance in in the star-studded cast of the
super-production Si Versailles m'etait conte/Affairs in Versailles (1953, Sacha
Guitry). Then she played opposite Bourvil and Louis de Funes in the comedy
Poisson d'avril/April Fools (1954, Gilles Grangier), and the musical comedy
Bonjour sourire/Hello smile (1955, Claude Sautet) with Henri Salvador. After the
success of the film operetta Chanteur de Mexico/The Mexican Singer (1956,
Richard Pottier) with the ‘prince of operetta’ Luis Mariano and Bourvil. It was
followed by a string of light entertainment films, including Tabarin (1957,
Richard Pottier) with Michel Piccoli, Cigarettes, Whisky et P'tites
pepees/Cigarettes, Whiskey and Wild Women (1958, Maurice Regamey), and Tete
folle/Madcap (1959, Robert Vernay). During the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s, she
appeared in some 30 French films, musical comedies but also dramas. In 1969, she
was a revelation as a dramatic actress in the thriller Le passager de la
pluie/Rider on the Rain (1970, Rene Clement) in which she played the role of the
mother of Marlene Jobert. She confirmed her dramatic talent with fine roles in
Le Chat/The Cat (1971, Pierre Granier-Deferre) with Jean Gabin and Simone
Signoret, the drama Rue Haute/High Street (1976, Andre Ernotte), and the Belgian
drama Un ete apres l'autre/One summer after another (1989, Anne-Marie Etienne).
Sandra Brennan writes at AllMovie: “In films she usually plays feisty women who
live life to the fullest. She also has demonstrated considerable talent as a
dramatic actress as can be seen in the 1994 film La vengeance d'une
blonde/Revenge of a Blonde.” She also played a dramatic role in the hugely
successful television series, Orage d'ete/Summer storms (1989, Jean Sagols). In
the 1990’s her appearances were mostly on television, and she recorded and
toured less. In 1992, the album Oh la la, quelle soiree! was released, a mixture
of new recordings of old hits and new material. In 1998 she celebrated her 70th
birthday and published her autobiography. She also released a compila

Charlie es una nina rubia, de ojos azules,
educada y carinosa. Pero tambien es piroquinetica. Si, puede encender fuego a
distancia, desde inofensivas fogatas hasta hogueras capaces de arrasar amplias

sus poderes destructores cuando sea adulta. Aunque, la verdad, tiene pocas
