My Fair Lady

  • Dir: George Cukor

  • USA, 1964, 173min, 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.

1965 8 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director & Best Actor
1966 BAFTA Awards, Best Film
2006 #8 in AFI’s 25 Greatest Movie Musicals of All Time
