The Disney comedy was the first NEW booking for the Ziegfeld since the theatre debuted with “Marooned” in December of the previous year. After a disappointing roadshow experience with “Marooned,” the Ziegfeld had offered a series of revivals, most recently with the two-part Russian version of “War and Peace.”
A film that should have played at the family friendly Music Hall rather than the stupefyingly bad Darling Lili. Not one of Disney’s better live action film but you weren’t thinking did Andrews and Edwards set out to make a film this awful? It finished off her meteoric film career for good. Her legendary legacy is still just Mary Poppins and Sound of Music. Though there is a gay cult following for Victor/Victoria.
