VINTAGE FILM Thoroughly Modern Millie

Thoroughly Modern Millie

“The Happiest Picture in Years,” boasts the trailer, and it’s hardly biased to say Millie is easily the most cheerful celluloid romp on the 1967 VFA shortlist. It’s based on a 1956 British musical and became a Broadway show in 2002, so never mind the plot – it’s got Julie Andrews singing catchy tunes, Mary Tyler Moore in zany mode, flappers doing something like the Time Warp, and Carol Channing doing jazz hands.
