Made in 1964, and time period/values show. Unclear why Eliza would go back to The Professor at the end.

This is hard to rate. There are some really great songs and some memorable visuals. However, and I'm not blaming Rex Harrison for his acting, but I just find that character really annoying and that comes through, for me, even in his "songs". Well done but really annoying. So, for me, I prefer the cd, which I've ripped selectively, leaving out the annoying parts.

GREAT 1964 film adaption of Broadway stage hit. Not sure how I missed it all these years, but now I've seen it and truly enjoyed the performances of Audrey Hepburn at age 35 and Rex Harrison at 52.
Lots of great staged scenes, especially the street cart dancing scene during 'Wouldn't It be Wonderful'.
Got to give credit to singer Marni Nixon who did the fabulous actual singing which Audrey only mouthed; most looked okay, except during 'I Could Have Danced All Night' which was so off I noted it, not so much the others.
Lots of terrific costuming - even that whacky HUGE hat Audrey wore during her ballroom debut (which is shown on DVD cover).
So much to enjoy about this film - one of the best musicals ever!
But I did find the romantic ending a little odd; guess they just had to wrap it up and this is what we got.

Beautiful songs (esp. Wouldn't it be lovely and On the Street Where You Live) but very unsatisfactory ending, and Higgens isn't portrayed as enough of a bad guy that he is. I wish it would have showed him have compassion for Eliza in the end, and see her as a person. Or I wish she had ended up with poor Freddy!:P

Pure joy to revisit this wonderful musical. Great acting and great soundtrack. Entertainment at best!

Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison were made for the parts of Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins in this wry look at the British class system. Their onscreen chemistry is further enhanced by great sets, amazing costumes and one of the most recognizable collections of songs from any musical. Unfortunately, three hours worth of cotton candy proved to be a bit much for me and I found my finger hovering over the “skip” button about halfway through. A real treat for die-hard fans though.

Familiar songs and some great set pieces ("Ascot Opening Day" is marvelous), but I wish they'd do "Pygmalion" instead. Eliza and Henry should *not* end up together.

The magic of "My Fair Lady" is captured in the reviews here at the KCLS web sight. Audrey Hepburn is irresistible and Rex Harrison puts on his best film performance. This may be the best musical on film. You be the judge though. I think you will be like me, I cannot get enough of "My Fair Lady". Why their aren't more traveling or Broadway shows of it is beyond me. "My Fair Lady" has millions of fans and will have them for many generations to come! What's more it is perfect viewing during the holiday. A great family film!

This movie is one of the most successful movies of all times. I cannot believe that I have watched this movie for 10 times and it is still as interesting and funny as the first time. I love all three main actors

My Fair Lady is still in high demand more than 50 years after it was released. It has the magic of three performers, Audrey Hepburn, Rex Harrison and Stanley Holloway. As of today, June 28, 2014, KCLS has 6 copies of the musical and 28 patrons waiting to see it. This is a classic for all time!

Eliza Dolittle: "I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night."
