Victor Victoria is a 1982 musical comedy film released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer that involves homosexuality, transvestism and sexual identity as central themes. It stars Julie Andrews, James Garner, Robert Preston, and Lesley Ann Warren.
Film synopsis, courtesy of RottenTomatoes.com:
On the verge of starvation in 1930s Paris, erstwhile entertainer Victoria (Julie Andrews) is rescued by gay cabaret performer Toddy (Robert Preston). What she needs to succeed, opines Toddy, is a gimmick. What if she becomes a male impersonator? Better still: what if she becomes a male impersonator, pretending to be a female impersonator? As "Victor/Victoria," s/he becomes the toast of Paris, and an object of fascination for big-time Chicago gangster King Marchan (James Garner), who can't quite understand the teasing sensations he experiences whenever watching her in action--especially since he, like everyone else, assumes that she is a he.
The screening will be held at Maxwell Hall Student Center at 4:30pm on Thursday, March 21. Admission is free but donations are accepted. All donations will go towards the LIM College Fashion Education Foundation (FEF).
