My Rating : 8/10

Aubrey Hepburn is PERFECT in this film. Julie Andrews who was the original broadway star of 'My Fair Lady' simply didn't get the role because she was not a big star at the time. These things happen, film business is rather nasty business where box office success is paramount. Audrey Hepburn gives a great performance.

'My Fair Lady' is a lively, entertaining and magical musical and an absolute joy to experience. It is undoubtedly a classic and a giant amongst Hollywood musicals.

Goofs

During the opening scenes at Covent Opera House there is a woman wearing a long purple dress. She is shown getting into a car, and then seconds later is seen running when the rain starts.


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

The intermission is deleted from AMC viewings of the film.
