My Fair Lady

My Fair Lady directed by George Cukor(1964) 


Best 100 Movies of All Time Divider

       George Bernard Shaw's play "Pygmalion" made a delightful stage and movie presence.  It is the ultimate before and after picture, taking a cockney street flower vendor and turning her into an acceptable inductee to the upper class of English society.  The story reinvorces the old adage (which also seems to be a truism) that you can tell what class an englishperson belongs to by the way they speak.  Rex Harrison is delightful as the person leading Eliza Doolittle's  metamorphosis from street waif to grand lady.  I take exception to the casting of pristinely beautiful Audrey Hepburn in the role of Eliza.  Ms. Hepburn never looked low class in her life (she couldn't possibly) so the transformation to upper crust grande dame was less than remarkable.
