Quotes

Mrs. Eynsford-Hill: Don't just stand there, Freddy, go and find a cab.
Freddy Eynsford-Hill: All right, I'll get it, I'll get it.


Goofs

Wilfrid Hyde-White (Col. Pickering) actually forgot the housekeeper's name (Mrs. Pearce) as she left the room without hesitation, and remembered it after she had left. The scene was not re-shot.


Crazy Credits

In the posters, playbills and the original cast album for the stage version of "My Fair Lady", the credits always read "based on Bernard Shaw's 'Pygmalion' ", letting the audience know what play "My Fair Lady" was actually adapted from. The movie credits simply read "from a play by Bernard Shaw".
