My Fair Lady 1.0 stars

My Fair Lady movie poster

Epitomical Hollywood musical of the "roadshow" epoch: overdressed, overstuffed, overlong. A fancy dinner party of a movie (Lerner and Loewe via G.B. Shaw via Greek mythology), at which you just want to slip off your shoes and wiggle your toes. At the time, some people felt bad for Julie Andrews because she didn't get plucked off the Broadway stage along with Rex Harrison: so bad, in fact, that she was given a consolatory Oscar at the earliest opportunity (Mary Poppins, that same year). Costarring Audrey Hepburn and somebody else's singing voice; directed by George Cukor. 1964.
