The beauty of My Fair Lady

Many people know of the classic movie My Fair Lady. Few people watched it every night throughout their high school tenure as yours truly.  There is something about this movie that makes me see new aspects every time. I love how each character molds the other, how Eliza Dolittle becomes a "tower of strength." Something many young women need to see. I love the witty dialogue. You know it's good when you start to laugh before they say the line, even though you have heard in a hundred times you like it just the same. And of course it's a musical, so I love the music, choreography and fancy dresses that Eliza wears.

It's what's so great about musicals. It makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over. It's my favorite feel good movie. I watch it when I am blue or just want to smile. Take a minute, or actually 3 hours, to enjoy this classic. I would love to hear what others think about this movie.

You were a wild one in high school, weren't you.

Only TeamAWAC could mention Stewie in the same sentence as Rex Harrison! Next you'll be saying that Madge reminds you of Audrey Hepburn! Blasphemy...

I've grown accustomed to this movie... Despite the fact that this movie has no explosions, computer generated special effects, or pants-shaking bass.. this is still a fun movie to watch. The songs are catchy and the dialog is quick and witty. However, Family Guy's Stewie is based on Rex Harrison's character which I'm sure has only added to my appreciation of the movie.

Loved this film, and I am not a lover of the musical genre. Probably my favorite musical, I listen to the soundtrack in the car every so often. Even got my 30 yr. old daughter into it. Great acting by all, the music and score is just superb!!!

This is Paramount's first chance to release MY FAIR LADY on DVD; following a lapse in the distribution/copyright formerly controlled by Warner Brothers. No doubt they'll later include it in an Audrey Hepburn box-set with their other Hepburn titles ("Roman Holiday", "Funny Face" and "Sabrina" among them).    MY FAIR LADY is a true cinema classic; one of the last major Hollywood musicals and the film which finally netted director George Cukor a belated Academy Award for 'Best Director'. …

About this movie

Wiki

A priceless classic, MY FAIR LADY has become one of the most popular musicals of all time. Based on George Bernard Shaw?s 1913 play PYGMALION, the film swept the Academy Awards. Cecil Beaton?s lavish sets and costumes and Lerner and Loewe?s winning score became the background for George Cukor?s striking mix of styles that ranged from the fantastic to the abstract in his telling of the tale of a waif who?s educated into being a lady. Egotistical linguist Professor Henry Higgins (Oscar-winning Rex Harrison) bets his friend, Colonel Hugh Pickering (Wilfrid Hyde-White), that he can transform Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn) in time for an important society ball. His gamble could pay off--but the spirited Eliza is more of a handful than the Professor could have predicted. As she slowly becomes more refined, and less reliant upon him, Higgins realizes, to his confusion, that he can?t live without her. The film was nominated for 12 Oscars and won eight, including Best Picture and Director.
