My fair lady
Not any feelings that we need bother about. Cheerily Have you, Eliza? I must know on what terms the girl is to be here.
What is to become of her when you've finished your teaching? You must look ahead a little, sir. Answer me that, Mrs.
He is moved to a chuckle by his own little pleasantry Oh, you've no feelin' heart in you: you don't care for nothing but yourself. I've had enough of this.

I'm going. Snatching a chocolate cream from the table, his eyes suddenly twinkling with mischief Have some chocolates. Halting, tempted How do I know what might be in them?
I've heard of girls being drugged by the like of you. I eat one half and you eat the other. ELIZA opens her mouth to retort. You shall live on them, eh?

Her mouth full I wouldn't have ate it, only I'm too ladylike to take it out of me mouth. Think of chocolates, and taxis, and gold, and diamonds.
I don't want no gold and no diamonds. I'm a good girl, I am. Excuse me, Higgins, but I really must interfere!
Pearce is quite right. If this girl is to put herself in your hands for six months for an experiment in teaching, she must understand thoroughly what she's doing! If you're good and do whatever you're told, you shall sleep in a proper bedroom and have lots to eat, and money to buy chocolates and take ,rides in taxis.
If you're naughty and idle you will sleep in the back kitchen among the black beetles, and be walloped by Mrs. Pearce with a broomstick. At the end of six months you shall go to Buckingham Palace in a carriage, beautifully dressed.
If the King finds out you're not a lady, you will. If you are not found out, you shall have a present of seven-and- six to start life with as a lady in a shop. If you refuse this offer you will be the most ungrateful, wicked girl; and the angels will weep for you.
To MRS. But they won't take me unless I can talk more genteel. Higgins' response will thrum below the action for most of the play: "You know, it's almost irresistible.
She's so deliciously low. So horribly dirty. It is unnecessary to summarize the plot or list the songs; if you are not familiar with both, you are culturally illiterate, although in six months I could pass you off as a critic at Cannes, or even a clerk in a good video store, which requires better taste.
It is difficult to discuss George Cukor's film as it actually exists because, even now, an impenetrable thicket of legend and gossip obscures its greatness. Many viewers would rather discuss the film that wasn't made, the one that would have starred Julie Andrews , who made the role of Eliza her own on the stage.

Casting Audrey Hepburn was seen as a snub of Andrews, and so it was; producer and studio head Jack L. Warner chose Hepburn for her greater box-office appeal, and was prepared to offer the role to Elizabeth Taylor if Hepburn turned it down. Advertisement One of the best-known items in the history of movie trivia is that Hepburn did not sing her own songs, but was dubbed by the gifted Marni Nixon.
So notorious became this dubbing, so egregious was it made to appear, that although "My Fair Lady" was nominated for 12 Oscars and won eight including best picture, actor, director and cinematography , Hepburn was not even nominated for best actress; Julie Andrews was, the same year, for "Mary Poppins," and she won.
At this remove, can we step back and take a fresh look at the controversy? True, Hepburn did not sing her own songs although she performed some of the intros and outros , and there was endless comment on moments when the lip-syncing was not perfect. Even actors who did their own singing were lip-syncing to their own pre-recorded dubs and an occasional uncredited assist. I learn from Robert Harris , who restored "My Fair Lady" in , that this was apparently the first musical to use any form of live recording of the music, although "only of Mr.
Harrison, who refused to mouth to playbacks.
His early model wireless microphone can be seen as a rather inflated tie during his musical numbers. That Hepburn did not do her own singing obscures her triumph, which is that she did her own acting.
All of this Hepburn does flawlessly and with heedless confidence, in a performance that contains great passion. Consider the scenes where she finally explodes at Higgins' misogynist disregard, returns to the streets of Covent Garden, and finds she fits in nowhere. Now you've made a lady of me, I'm not fit to sell anything else.
Higgins Gladys Cooper orders him to behave himself. Higgins realizes he loves Eliza, but even in the play's famous last line he perseveres as a defiant bachelor: "Eliza? Where the devil are my slippers? Advertisement Apart from the wonders of its words and music, "My Fair Lady" is a visual triumph. Cukor made use above all of Cecil Beaton, a photographer and costume designer, who had been production designer on only one previous film "Gigi," This can be seen in Mr.
However, his uncon- trollable curiosity holds him at the last moment to hear what else ELIZA has to say Besides, he'd poured so much down his own throat that he knew the good of it.
It is still not sufficiently appreciated what influence it had on the creation of feminism and class-consciousness in the years bridging when "Pygmalion" premiered, when the musical premiered, and when the film premiered. The girl doesn't belong to anybody, and she's no use to anybody but me. Higgins Gladys Cooper orders him to behave himself.
