Julie Andrews becoming a Disney Legend


Posted By

In honor of Julie Andrews, who turned 80 two days ago on October 1st, here’s a photo I took of her back in 1991 when she was honored as a Disney Legend and received her Disney Legends Award. Here she is writing her name, before placing her hand prints in cement. She was honored alongside other actors and artists. While not all publicly known, they were no less important in their roles in Disney history.

I remember that day so well. I didn’t get to meet all the recipients of the awards, but my friend, Bob Sherman, who wrote the music for Mary Poppins with his brother, introduced me to her! That was so special to me, and she seemed so nice!
