  • James R.'s rating of the film Darling Lili

    Unlike the unjustly maligned Star!, Darling Lili is a true failure, although it might have succeeded had the studio given Blake Edwards more artistic freedom. Several years later, Edwards excised twenty minutes, (downplaying the lighter comic elements), doing nothing to improve the film's disjointedness and failed attempts to satirize Andrews' sugary image. Some good music can be salvaged from this mess, however.
