Synopsis: In 1934 Paris, trained coloratura soprano Victoria Grant, a native Brit, can't get a job as a singer and is having trouble making ends meet. She doesn't even have enough money for the basics of food and shelter. Gay cabaret singer Carole 'Toddy' Todd may befall the same fate as Victoria as he was just fired from his singing gig at a second rate club named Chez Lui. To solve both their problems, Toddy comes up with what he considers an inspired idea: with Toddy as her manager, Victoria, pretending to be a man, get a job singing as a female impersonator. If they pull this scheme off, Toddy vows Victoria, as her male alter ego, will be the toast of Paris and as such be extremely wealthy. That alter ego they decide is Polish Count Victor Grazinski, Toddy's ex-lover who was disowned by his family when they found out he was gay. The Count auditions for the city's leading agent, Andre Cassell, who, impressed, gets him a gig performing in the city's best nightclub. In the audience on the succe

-Toddy, get out!

-AII right.

-And don't come back!

If you ever set foot in this pIace again,

I wiII have you thrown out!

Don't make it sound Iike such a threat.

Being thrown out of here is better

than being thrown out of a Ieper coIony.


Something to drink?

CouId I see your wine Iist?

We have a white, 1934.

We have a red, 1934.

Last week we had some ros,

but we're using it in the saIad.

-Which do you recommend?

-The red is 6 centimes cheaper.

I'II have the white.

I'II bet you're a RockefeIIer.

Something wrong?

-I thought maybe you had a dog.


I've onIy been gone five minutes.

I figured something heIped you eat it.

It was deIicious.

-You want a saIad?



The chicken was so good,

I thought I'd try the pork.


-Does it take Iong?

About haIf an hour.

-What about the boeuf bourguignon?

-That's ready.

I'II have that,

and I'II have the saIad afterwards.

You reaIize, of course,

you're entitIed to two saIads.

-CouId you put them both on one pIate?

-That's possibIe.


DeIicious wine.

Maybe you'd Iike to choose

your two desserts.

AppIe fIan and Coupe Jacques

might go weII together.

Just a smaII coffee.

Good evening. I had the pIeasure

of hearing you sing this afternoon.

You must be mistaken.

I haven't sung in about two weeks.

Your audition at Chez Lui.

That wasn't singing,

and I wouId hardIy caII it an audition.

-I used to work there.

-My condoIences.

I hope I haven't bothered you.

I wanted to teII you

that you have a IoveIy voice...

...and to say how sorry I am

I can't buy you dinner.

Thank you.

-Pardon me, monsieur.

-Thank you.

CouId I have a knife and fork, pIease?

Excuse me.

Why are you sorry

that you can't buy me dinner?



I'm aIso CarroII Todd.

Toddy, to nearIy everybody who knows me.

Blake Edwards

William Blake Crump (July 26, 1922 – December 15, 2010), better known by his stage name Blake Edwards, was an American filmmaker. Edwards began his career in the 1940s as an actor, but he soon began writing screenplays and radio scripts before turning to producing and directing in television and films. His best-known films include Breakfast at Tiffany's, Days of Wine and Roses, 10, Victor/Victoria, and the hugely successful Pink Panther film series with British actor Peter Sellers. Often thought of as primarily a director of comedies, he also directed several drama, musical, and detective films. Late in his career, he transitioned to writing, producing, and directing for theater. In 2004, he received an Honorary Academy Award in recognition of his writing, directing, and producing an extraordinary body of work for the screen. more…
