Trivia

Audrey Hepburn's failure to win an Oscar nomination was considered a major upset, triggering protests from Warners and George Cukor. She rose above the snub, however, when the Academy invited her to present the Best Actor award, which went to co-star Rex Harrison. In accepting the award, he thanked "two fair ladies."


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

In the Royal Ascot scene, the horses race in the wrong direction.

Ascot is a right-handed track where the horses race clockwise and the grandstand is on the outside of the track. The camera is facing the crowd, so the horses should race from left to right, but they're shown racing the other way.


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".


Alternate Versions

In the remastered version of the film, some of the scene changes are changed from sudden cuts to wipe outs, as they probably were when the film was released. When CBS Fox released it on video originally, they were changed to sudden cuts.
