Julia, du bist zauberhaft (1962) [English dub] AKA Adorable Julia


Everybody loves Julia Lambert, she is so charming, she is so elegant, she is so irresistible… But Julia has problems. She is married to Michael, a stage producer, such an understanding man but also a little of a bore (although she will never admit it). She wants to be loved by all but she is vain and self-centered. She is aging (just slightly) and at forty she is beginning (unconsciously) to ask herself questions. And now she has fallen in love with Tom, a handsome young man, (only) a few years her junior. But Tom, more interested in climbing up the social ladder than in her personality, soon gets attracted to a cute upcoming actress, Averice Crichton…

      Hey Dan,
      Someone sent me the original in German but I don’t have subs for it unfortunately, if someone makes English subtitles for it in the future I will upload it as well, until then this one will have to do.

    I saw this movie on TV 50 years ago. It was the dubbed version, but the dubbing was so good that I never noticed it. (It’s just as well, as I am not fluent in German.) Lilli Palmer, Charles Boyer and Jean Sorel all spoke English, and their true voices were heard in this English dubbing. (I have heard a terrible dubbing in the German version; Charles Boyer’s voice in the German version was not obviously his.)
    I have been a big fan of Lilli Palmer ever since I saw this film 50 years ago. She was 47 or 48 when she made this film, but she looked 10 years younger. Wonderful actress.
