Flashback Friday: My Fair Lady

A poor flower girl meets a misogynistic professor who bets he can change this “draggletailed guttersnipe” into a lady by simply teaching her proper English. Who will be most transformed?

My Fair Lady is one of my favorite movies. I saw it first as a young girl and instantly fell in love with the story of Eliza Doolittle and Professor Henry Higgins. It’s difficult to say what I love more: the incredibly funny dialogue, the beautiful costumes by Cecil Beaton, the amazing chemistry between Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison, or the songs that can make me laugh (“Just You Wait,” “A Hymn To Him”) or swoon (“On the Street Where You Live,” “I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face”).

Every time I watch My Fair Lady, I always fall in love with it all over again. If you haven’t seen it, you must. I promise you’ll be singing “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” before you’re through watching.
