Shut Up and Watch This

#83: My Fair Lady (1964)

February 16, 2022

Dave has missed out on a good number of the musical spectacular films from the mid-twentieth century. And maybe it’s not such a loss to miss out on OKLAHOMA or HELLO, DOLLY and the like, but there is something interesting about MY FAIR LADY. Maybe it is the classical subject matter by way of a George Bernard Shaw play, Audrey Hepburn’s charming performance as Eliza or Rex Harrison’s odd talk-singing. And sure, the gender politics are a little dated, but there is something delightful about a man, once again, learning that when he tries to make someone in his image, that someone is going to have a mind of their own.
