The New York Times called it “lively but slightly distasteful” in its Oct. 28, 1964 review of the film. The Times’s Bosley Crowther: “If you can stand watching Julie Andrews playing a role in which she doesn’t sing, but in which she does make some beautiful music with a delightfully unheroic man, then nothing should deter you from going as swiftly as you can to see ‘The Americanization of Emily,’ which opened last night at Loew’s State.”

*Every Monday I watch a classic movie that falls into one of these categories: 1) Have never seen it, or 2) Have never seen it uncut, or 3) Have only seen it once, or 4) Haven’t seen it in a very long time.
