The 10 Best Julie Andrews Movies and TV Shows, Ranked

The dazzling starlet's most impressive work!

That distinct voice, regal aura, beauty and class are all of the things that define Julie Andrews — on top of her great success in movies and TV shows for more than 75 years.

Born Julia Elizabeth Wells in 1935, Andrews showed musical talent at a very young age, starting to sing in her mother and step-father’s music hall act at only 10-years old. Throughout her adolescence and young adulthood, she continued to hone her craft both on the stage and screen.

By 1954, she was making her Broadway debut in The Boy Friend, with stage roles continuing in the wake. In the subsequent years, she made appearances on TV and had roles in television movies like Cinderella (1957) and The Gentle Flame (1959), but it was 1964’s Mary Poppins that launched her to fame and earned her an Academy Award for her performance.

Julie Andrews movies and TV shows, ranked

10. The Tamarind Seed (1974)

Judith (Julie Andrews) has a job in the civil service, and while on vacation in the Caribbean, she meets a man and finds herself falling for him. The twist? He’s a Russian agent.

9. S.O.B. (1981)

Felix is a film director whose latest and most expensive film to date is a complete flop. Wildly unsatisfied with the state of his life and career, he pulls himself from the trenches he’s in and re-imagines the original vision for his failed film.

Instead of the family friendly flick he had pictured, he decides to re-shoot it as an adult rated film, meaning his lead star (Julie Andrews) with a good girl image has to make some bold moves — in less clothing than she’s used to.

8. Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967)

Roaring twenties-era Millie (Julie Andrews) has ambitions of marrying wealthy, but this mission she’s set out on isn’t as straightforward as she imagined it’d be.

7. Bridgerton (2020 —)

Though she only lends her voice to this wildly popular series, she does so well enough that not including it on the list would be blasphemous.

Bridgerton chronicles the lives of the Bridgerton children, all seeking love in regency era England. While each season follows the intricacies of a new character’s personal and romantic lives, Julie Andrews’ narration remains consistent as always!
