My Fair Lady
Dir: George Cukor
USA, 1964, 173minmins, DCP
Cast: Audrey Hepburn, Rex Harrison, Gladys Cooper
Out of the wit of Bernard Shaw’s old play, this timeless, captivating musical without a kiss is Hollywood at its best. A celebration of intelligence more than romance, Audrey Hepburn’s transformation from cockney guttersnipe goes beyond an elegant lady in high society at the hands of snobbish phonetics professor (Rex Harrison) to a selfconfident woman set free to realize her potential. On the rails of sharp dialogue and intricacies of lyric, this winner of eight Oscars is so powerful and enthralling that every age has embraced it.
