My Fair Lady


By George, they've got it! Newly transferred from elements painstakingly restored in 1994, the film version of Lerner and Loewe's My Fair Lady is lavish, lovely and the acclaimed recipient of eight 1964 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director (George Cukor).

Best Actor Oscar winner Rex Harrison reprises his signature stage role of Henry Higgins, the supremely assured phoeneticist who wagers that under his tutelage, cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle can pass for a duchess at the embassy ball. In one of her best-loved roles. Audrey Hepburn plays Eliza. If ever there was a face the professor could grow accustomed to, it's hers. In Hertford, Hereford and Hampshire (and elsewhere) no one's fairer than My Fair lady, one of the most irresistible musicals ever.

Stanley Holloway, Gladys Cooper, Jeremy Brett, Theodore Bikel, Mona Washbourne, Isobel Elsom, John Holland.

The whole cast acted and sang well in this movie, I'm not into musicals so I thought this was a bit corny and stupid. If your into musicals then you'll loved, I'm glad I watched it, but I'd never watch it again.
