Julia is on the cover of Time magazine, which dubs her “Our Lady of the Ladle.” The feature story describes Julia as the 54-year old, 6-ft.-2-inch tall star of The French Chef, whose “viewers on 104 educational TV stations across the U.S. watch her every move, forgive her every gaffe, and in a word, adore her. Manhattan matrons refuse to dine out the night she is on. When Washington D.C.’s WETA interrupted her program to carry Lyndon Johnson live, the station’s switchboard was jammed for an hour.”
