The Americanization of Emily is an American comedy-drama war film written by Paddy Chayefsky, directed by Arthur Hiller, starring James Garner, Julie Andrews, Melvyn Douglas and James Coburn, and loosely adapted from the novel of the same name by William Bradford Huie, who had been a SeaBee officer on D-Day. Both Garner and Andrews consider it their personal favorite of their films. Set in London in 1944 during World War II, in the weeks leading up to D-Day, the black-and-white film also features Joyce Grenfell and Keenan Wynn.
