1982 movie version
of "Victor Victoria"

Sine amore jocisque nil est jucundum
(
Without love and laughter, nothing is pleasant)

 

 

Victor Victoria (1982) - Starring Ms. Julie Andrews, and Mr. Robert Preston
One of the nicest movies ever made to rejuvenate the human spirit.
This wonderful movie Victor Victoria has un unforgettable scene in it -
one of the most memorable in movie making history for its humanistic appeal.
It's the "restaurant scene" featuring Miss Julie Andrews and Mr. Robert Preston.
Hard out on their luck, they have to act completely desperate for a meal -
"at the Ritz" for that matter! taking the risk of their very lives!
Then again there are two (or one more at least, certainly, great songs of all
time). Then again, the music in the opening credits is "to die for". 

Along with the complete restaurant scene, the two most unforgettable 
 songs (scenes) I refer to are:
"gay Paree"
"You and me"
"crazy world"
"Chicago"

No decent sort should ever begrudge a Ms. Julie Andrews
a meal  - the best meal there could be in fact! Why bother to
make it so hard to see this truth! Therein lies what greatness there
is in our spirit of supreme human for those that know this for
their own selves in fact!
