We continue Musical Month Deux with a Julie Andrews-helmed performance musical that has some rather progressive ideas about gender and sexual politics: Victor/Victoria. 80's TV Ladies' Susan Lambert Hatem programs the episode and stops by to talk all about James Garner, 80's sexual politics, and if this could be remade in 2024.

Based on the 1933 German film, the musical follows the titular Victoria as she attempts to make a name for herself in 1930's Paris by posing as Count Victor, the world's foremost female impersonator. She's aided in her attempt by Robert Preston's Toddy, a gay performer down on his luck, who does everything he can to make her the biggest star in the music scene.
