My Fair Lady Movie Review Summary

Actors: Rex Harrison, Audrey Hepburn

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of My Fair Lady

I have to say that this is somewhat of a romance film, the relationship between Henry and Eliza has its sparks. Even though Eliza had been downtrodden she stood up to her teacher, making a stand for women of her age who have been oppressed by men. She is a good example of a fictional heroine.

The review of this Movie prepared by Rachel Starwood

The story is based around this young woman's fight(Eliza Dolittle plyaed by Audrie Hepburn) to crawl from the gutters of poverty by learning to speak like a lady. This movie shows how different the poor and the educated are ,but at the sametime shows that one class is no better than the other class. Henry Higins(Rex Harrison) plays opposite of Eliza making both a romantic cemistry. Higins goes through a metomorphisis becuase of Ilaza; she shows him that the assumtions he had made through life werent right and to live life you have to stop being a bully and open up and let people in. Eliza thought Henry to care and Henry tought Eliza to "speak beutifully' (Rex Harrison).

When Professor Higgins takes on flower-seller Eliza Dolittle for speech work, the outcome is great. So, he takes her to the horse races where she accidentally slips out some large cockney-acceented speech, and to the embassy ball where people begin to wonder. The ending is a great ending to a great musical.
The review of this Movie prepared by kaity loder

Can any musical be more grandiose, more flamboyant, more regal? Certainly, “My Fair Lady” is the “queen of the musicals” and with such stars and Rex Harrison and Audrey
Hepburn in charge, there is little wonder of its success. Based upon the George Bernard Shaw play “Pygmalion,” “My Fair Lady” gets us to the church on time, after dancing all
night on the street where we live. With the dazzling splendor that Director George Cukor offers, the 1964 film is as classic in American cinema, earning eight Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor (Harrison). The Lerner and Lowe music simply adds to the grandeur of the film as Professor Higgins takes on Eliza Doolittle in his effort to “pass her off as a duchess in six months,” a wager he's made to his friend Pickering. The bet is not
an easy one, of course, as personalities, romance, and socially significant issues get in the way. But, “all's well that ends well,” and by the time this 170 minute movie concludes, we find Professor Higgins and Eliza have resolved their differences.
