Note: I watched Blake Edwards' cut of the film. Those films are dinosaurs. They don't have any of the litheness and vivacity that often make smaller musical movies work.
Their size is a paralyzing factor.

The plot, which is about a Mata Hari-type spy played…. Blake Edwards love letter to Julie Andrews is still better known for being a very major flop neither of their careers ever really recovered commericial wise , but it really should be seeing as of the weirder more likable major follies of the era.
This a very affecting film about the duplicity theme that is recurrent through Edwards filmography. It is bloated and the radical changes of tone can be very off-putting but by the final half hour it has become a rather moving experience and the main musical numbers are beautiful. Edwards is more naked here than in some of his more intentional autiobiographical films.
Gun to my head, if I had to pick one musical number in all of American musical histor - well, yeah, ok, it's "Singin' in the Rain.

Where we are is really a magical plane created by Blake Edwards' soulmelting use of….

Interesting that a movie with so much soft-cursing and sexcapades is rated "G", but when has that stuff ever made sense. And as others on this site have pointed out, that opening sequence might be one of the best musical intros to a film that I've ever seen! Review by Jake. Traditional wisdom says that productions of this size are crippled by their own grandeur.
But Edwards's at his peak has a special gift of mining raw emotion and humor, often in-between scenes. It takes a trust in his performers to deliver the material, and both stars here revel in their duplicity, creating a surprising dynamic that scribbles outside of the lines of classical romantic fantasy.

It was Julie Andrews had hit her highs onscreen, and her star was starting to fade, at least in the public's eye. Audiences didn't seem to care for this WWI musical drama. In fact, they were staying away in droves from ANY musical--drama or not. Julie sings beautifully, especially the haunting "Whistling Away the Dark," a lovely Henri Mancini tune that opens and closes the film. Her performance is nuanced and quite affecting--just watch her as a fat tear silently slides down her cheek after a tumultuous argument with Major Larabee.

Support and Feedback
Edwards also can't seem to help himself from sliding into formulaic comedy bits he apparently thinks a bumbling Frenchman with an umbrella on a roof in a rainstorm is hilarious--it shows up in film after film of his.
