Julie Andrews and Blake Edwards first met in 1959. They were literally passing each other in their cars. She had been playing Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady on Broadway. She had also made her television debut on CBS's broadcast of Cinderella.

She told Good Morning Britain that, "I was going one way and he was going the other, he rolled down the window after smiling a couple of times and he said, 'Are you going where I just came from?'" They didn't meet again until much later though.
